FEMA is challenged, again, this week by yet another Hurricane – Maria — doubling down on the destruction wrought on the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico by her sister Irma.

The US military evacuated its personnel from the islands.  When will they be returning?

Repeated storms have leveled the Virgin Island communities.  The level of damage and economic dislocation demand a greater US government response.

My heart went out to the Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, who looked into the TV camera Tuesday – as the storm was barreling down on Puerto Rico – “don’t forget us” and we must not.
