US President Joe Biden pledged support to the people of Puerto Rico after major damage was caused by Hurricane Fiona. The people on the Caribbean island have had to go through so much in recent years and have not always received help in time, said Biden during a visit to the US territory, alluding to the previous government.
In 2017, the hurricane "Maria" hit the island with a good three million inhabitants and cost the lives of almost 3,000 people. At that time, Biden's predecessor, Donald Trump, was in office. Puerto Rico's infrastructure was still suffering when the center of Fiona made landfall in Puerto Rico as a category one-five hurricane in mid-September. Floods, landslides and destruction occurred. The power supply was also badly affected.
Biden also wants to visit the US state of Florida this Wednesday, where hurricane "Ian" had caused enormous damage in the past few days.
