NJ resident returns home after being stranded in Puerto Rico

Officer Izzy Marrero answered the call for volunteers without hesitation.

About 320,000 Puerto Ricans live in Central Florida, and some officials are estimating as many as 100,000 may flee the island and settle with family and friends in the region.

Alicea said the aid will go to the poorest people on the island who are still living without the basic needs.

She says it was just a few weeks ago her family was stranded in Puerto Rico during Hurricane Maria.

"Just want to help out as much as we can".

Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans said he didn't know what kind of lodging or conditions the officers could expect once they arrive on the island, speculating that they might be put up on a military boat.

"The suffering in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands is heartbreaking, and while we cannot rebuild their homes we can offer students a way to continue their education and help return their lives to normal", said EFSC President Dr. Jim Richey.

New Jersey State Police is the latest force in the state to send its officers to Puerto Rico to assist in the recovery efforts from Hurricane Maria.

The group collected donations at four different locations throughout Memphis. It also includes 13 Massachusetts State Police cruisers to be used during the deployment.

Cruz said, "This is what being a police officer is all about, and this is why we're going down there".

MA police officers are lending a helping hand to the victims of Hurricane Maria.
