San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz made a desperate plea late Saturday night, fearing that power had gone outside in among the Puerto Rican funding’s associations and blasting FEMA for its response. Cruz continues to be an increasingly vocal critic of the national authorities’s response to the post-hurricane catastrophe in Puerto Rico, warning in recent weeks which collapse to divert a large amount of resources to the island could bring about “some thing close to a genocide. ”
Cruz sent the tweets a little before midnight on Saturday. She stated that two patients at the San Juan hospital had been moved. She tweeted again when four were taken elsewhere, accusing the agency of having neglected to offer sufficient support and all while tagging FEMA manager Brock Long.
“Have requested support from @FEMA_Brock NOTHING,” Cruz tweeted. She labeled in rsquo & CNN;s breaking news Twitter account and CBS News anchor David Begnaud in tweets.
Support had been requested by the Hospital from no response and FEMA. Oh sorry data is collecting…

Begnaud reported on the situation in a short video posted to his own Twitter account Sunday afternoon, highlighting Extended’s response.

Cruz is now an extremely visible target for some in the Donald Trump government in recent weeks, thanks to her urgent and powerful criticisms of the national authorities’s disaster response. Trump has personally gone on the attack in reaction, calling Cruz “not a capable person” less than a week after his gaffe-filled, much-criticized visit to the island and tweeting that “politically motivated ingrates” aren’t giving the authorities the credit it deserves.
Long too criticized Cruz on Sunday afternoon, stating FEMA has “filtered out the mayor a long time back” and phoning her criticisms and pleading for additional help “political sound. ” Currently, more than 90 percent of Puerto Rico is without electricity, food and drinkable water are infrequent, and tens of thousands of people whose houses were ruined by the storm are still living in shelters.
