Local remembers deadly 1928 hurricane that killed hundreds in Puerto Rico

Eduardo Verdugo

The #Empire State Building in #New York City paid tribute Thursday night to countries recently affected by Hurricane Maria, as well as the devastating #Mexico City Earthquake.

As of May 2016, 43 percent of respondents believed that children of Puerto Rican parents in Puerto Rico would be American citizens, while 41 percent said they would be Puerto Rican citizens. Still, that storm knocked out power to 70 percent of the island and left almost 40 percent of Puerto Ricans without running water.

"Our lights will rotate in the colors of the flags of Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominica and the US Virgin Islands tonight to raise awareness for the victims of the quake in Mexico and Hurricane Maria". They later lost contact with the vessel due to the weather.

Dominica saw hundreds of homes destroyed as the Category 4 hurricane hit the island, cutting off communications with the outside world and shutting down its airport.

In Dominica, 15 people have been confirmed dead so far.

Carmelo Anthony hoping for a trade to Rockets before Monday
However, while discussing the names of the players who he thinks will be the future of NY , he didn't mention Anthony . Houston, of course, is Anthony's preferred destination but, it seems that a deal to get Carmelo there is unlikely.

On Tuesday afternoon, a magnitude 7.1 natural disaster rattled Mexico City, sending the country into chaos with a death toll so far of over 200, according to The Washington Post.

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto declared three days of mourning for victims of the quake, and schools in the capital and surrounding areas will remain closed until Monday.

This time the building was lit up spectacularly to honor the many people suffering from Irma's sister, Maria.

The Navy and British Royal Navy also assisted with the rescue, the U.S. Coast Guard reported.
