Send Relief assists pop-up classrooms after Puerto Rico earthquakes
PONCE, Puerto Rico (BP) -- When the most recent earthquakes started rumbling in Puerto Rico in December of 2019, it unnerved residents who were still anxious from Hurricane María, which pummeled the island two and a half years ago. Then, when the 6.4 earthquake struck on January 7, 2020, people were visibly shaken. "The whole island has PTSD," said retired Army sergeant and local resident Gilberto "Bam Bam" Rodríguez. "They have an overwhelming sense of helplessness."
