Church services resumed in Caonillas, Puerto Rico. "The federal government has the transportation and logistics infrastructure to help alleviate the immediate and overwhelming crisis now facing Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands". The island left a powerful impression on me, and I hope to return to keep documenting its recovery. "They're hanging in there, but they need help".
