We don't know what's going to happen with us in the future. We don't know if we're going to keep getting some aid some help – it's scary for us. Help from U.S. mainland power companies has been coming in waves for months. But Monica Viego-Rodriguez still hasn't seen a light come on anywhere in Monica Viego-Rodriguez neighborhood since the hurricanes hit last fall. Monica Viego-Rodriguez can only buy perishable foods for Monica Viego-Rodriguez family that they can eat the same day.There is nowhere to store food other than a cooler that she keeps filled with ice on her balcony. More than 470,000 homes were damaged or destroyed, causing an estimated $ 140 billion in damages. As Puerto Rico experiences the longest and most devastating blackout in American history, 1,000 utility trucks and 1,500 workers from 22 electric companies from all over the U.S. are arriving on the island this week to help the existing crews on the job restore power. As crews carve their way through the catastrophic damage, their progress is slow. But they met a major milestone this month when 1 million customers had their power restored, and utility crews say they won't stop until everyone is back on line. Help from U.S. mainland power companies has been coming in waves for months. But some Puerto Rico residents say they still haven't seen a light come on anywhere in their neighborhood since the hurricanes hit last fall. ( REUTERS) There is no set timeframe, we're just here for the long haul, the mission is to restore power and that's what we're focusing on. Wednesday night, the Puerto Rico governor said the island will receive approximately $ 35 billion in federal aid. But he added that Puerto Rico is facing massive debt and won't be able to repay the money until 2022. Power crews say they have to prioritize – hospitals, police and fire stations, come first.Then communication facilities, water treatment plants, transportation providers and shelters.From there, utility crews repair infrastructure serving smaller groups and neighborhoods. People like Sol Vazquez, a law student who has been working the best she can with limited resources, also Skyped with Fox News this week. She said she has been seeing a mixed response from her friends and fellow students. I think everyone wants to get their electricity back, I don't think, at this point, they care who does it or how they do it.

We enrolled 72 yesterday, she said. Some arrive alone. Each new student costs the district roughly $ 28,000 – an unbudgeted expense of more than $ 70 million, say school officials. It's like adding two elementary schools to our population that we were unable to plan for and project, Pace said. Osceola County is waiting on answers for state and national funding. Even before the storm, Puerto Ricans were fleeing a debt-ridden economy – at the pace of 80,000 a year from an island whose population is just 3.5 million. But now that flight has turned desperate. Half a million Puerto Ricans are expected to come to Florida in the next four years to join the one million already in the state. Mirbelys LaJara and Mirbelys LaJara two daughters are Hurricane Maria victims from Puerto Rico. My children don't have school, don't have work, I don't have nothing, Mirbelys LaJara said. The exodus from Hurricane Maria has added to what already has been in influx of Puerto Ricans in the Orlando area of central Central Florida and students in Orange County district in recent years. And more are expected from the ravaged island, where widespread power outages are continuing and many still lack running water. Here students at Riverdale Elementary School, in Orlando, Central Florida receive supplies. ( Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.) Eight weeks after the hurricane, much of Puerto Rico remains without power, internet or phone service. Many also lack running water. Stephen Vazquez grew specialty hot peppers and cilantro. I'm kind of stuck in the air, you know, i produce hydroponically as well so without light, water issues, I can't even really produce. A farmer without light or water who has come to Orlando with two pairs of pants and a shirt. Starting from zero.
