Florida to provide Puerto Rico high school diplomas to eligible evacuees

Some juniors and seniors who left their high schools in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria are in danger of dropping out, but the State of Florida is now trying to make it easier for them to graduate.

The state is coordinating with Puerto Rico to get student credits transferred and to get transcripts delivered. "The one in Orlando we moved into Orange County recently, but we've seen about 35,000 people come to our relief centers".

"Communities are completely isolated and they don't have access to health care" says Yeampierre, '100 days is an indictment of the USA and its lack of commitment to Puerto Rico, ' she says".

"Sanders", Blumenthal said. "We can not allow this administration to abandon fellow Americans and declare mission accomplished while half of Puerto Rico remains in the dark, clean drinking water is unavailable and thousands of people are living in temporary shelters".

"We're going to continue to work with FEMA as much as we can to help individuals that are coming here, do everything we can to help him get a job, get the kids to a good school, be safe, get to housing", Scott said.

Residents of Puerto Rico displaced by Hurricane Maria are finding a new weather challenge in Chicago: They're looking for help dealing with the extreme cold.

Scott also pledged to provide relief to those still on the island. Puerto Rico's electrical utility says it is operating at 69% of normal capacity-but that figure doesn't indicate how numerous island's residents are actually receiving power.

The governor visited Puerto Rico twice and met with local offices about what can be done to help those who are still in need. A full restoration of electricity isn't expected until May.
