Post-hurricane investing: How to look for win-win opportunities

Post-hurricane investing: How to look for win-win opportunities

MAP's prayers and commitment to helping the citizens of Puerto Rico remains strong.

In the aftermath, the Andersons have been scrambling to send help to relatives and others.

The coquito drink is traditionally made with Puerto Rican rum, Geronimo's staff will be mixing it with tequila instead. Whitefish had about 270 employees in Puerto Rico as of midweek, working both on transmission and distribution. The onslaught was sufficient to knock down hundreds of transmission towers and thousands of distribution poles and lines.

Flying debris broke the wooden roof and ripped out electric wires, while concrete parts of the house cracked, too. When he spoke to the Daily Advertiser by phone last week, he had not been back to his home in Dallas. New York lost 4 percent of its population in the 1970s. As of today, half of the island is still without potable drinking water and almost 85 percent are without electricity.

Being an island province, Puerto Rico is also subject to limitations because of geography, thereby forcing PREPA to rely on imported petroleum for a majority of power production across the region.

He predicts if the water crisis around the world is ignored, the issue will continue to grow. Her doctor tells her to stop thinking about those things, but she said she can't help it. She's reminded every time it rains. To put that in perspective, it's roughly four times the amount that fell in Roanoke, over four days, producing the flood of 1985.

He told The Independent the major driver for people leaving Puerto Rico was employment opportunities.

The technology is proven; the financials make sense. Their electrical grid was destroyed before the hurricanes got there.

A FAMILY of five have endured a tough few weeks as they have battled with the after math of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.

Now, after Maria, weddings and other formal parties have been largely canceled through December, so his store is closed.

FLORIDO: There are actually two kinds of tarps. His wife wants him to leave, too.
