Bill Clinton in Puerto Rico to Observe Hurricane Wreckage

SAN JUAN – Former US President Bill Clinton, accompanied by Puerto Rican Gov. Ricardo Rossello, visited on Monday a refuge set up in the William Rivera Betancourt Vocational School in Canovanas municipality on the north side of the island.

As stated there by Rossello, the former president’s view of the situation is of the utmost importance because he is focused on how to end the emergency phase to get life back to normal and move on to the reconstruction phase.

The Clinton administration was part of Puerto Rico’s recovery process after Hurricane Georges swept through in 1998, plus the Clinton Foundation collaborated on reconstruction after the devastating hurricane hit Haiti.

The governor also said that the former president’s presence on the island is important because it attracts attention to how much aid is still needed for recovery.

The former president and governor were accompanied by Canovanas municipality Mayor Lornna Soto.

Rossello also revealed that Clinton had been in contact with him “and with others in Puerto Rico since before the hurricane struck, and afterwards as well, to see how he could help.”

Clinton is in Puerto Rico two months after Hurricane Maria to observe at first hand the destruction it left on the island.
