Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory, is still awaiting humanitarian aid. A majority of the island is without power. Many are without running water.
Gov. Ricardo Rossello says the nation's infrastructure is devastated and the people need more help.
On Tuesday, more than 3,000 National Guard members responded to help with hurricane relief efforts.
A team of six from the Wisconsin National Guard's 115th Fighter Wing has deployed to Puerto Rico. They will provide communications support for areas with no internet, telephone, or radio resources.
