"The Puerto Rican bishops praised the faithful for maintaining ".order and respect for neighbors, the law and the property of others". GlobalGiving, a crowdfunding site for charities, is trying to raise $5 million for local relief and recovery efforts.

Trump on Tuesday said, "This is an island sitting in the middle of an ocean".
