Michigan Congressman Says Virgin Islands Is In ‘Worse Shape’ Than Puerto Rico … Not Knowing It Looked Like That Before The Storms
ST. JOSEPH, Mich. — “Devastating” was one of the words U.S. Rep. Fred Upton used to describe the hurricane damage he saw over the weekend while visiting the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
“Here we are three months after the storm and there’s still much hardship,” Upton said. “… Remember, these are Americans.”
Category 5 Hurricane Maria hit the Virgin Islands Sept. 19-20 and Puerto Rico on Sept. 20.
