I suppose they are taking care of their own families right now, and who can blame them? Plus, the roads are mostly destroyed. I understand the situation in the areas outside of the cities is even worse. I know the military is distributing thousands of satellite phones all over the island since the cell towers are all destroyed except for one. So perhaps phone services will again be available and the people can learn what is arriving at their docks or already there. It's just hard to imagine how impossible all this is for Puerto Rico.
    There is also a lack of gasoline and diesel to move those trucks. What little they have is being used for things like hospital generators. So truck drivers can't drive anyway.
