FEMA says it will end food and water aid to hurricane-stricken Puerto Rico on Wednesday.

The Moorestown-based company spent the weekend of January 20-21 at the San Juan Marriott Resort holding a recruitment event, which saw a turnout of more than 100 candidates and resulted in the company securing 26 commitments.

ComEd's support comes following a request by the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) asking for mainland companies to provide assistance.

30, more than 660,000 of the 3.6 million people on the island still were without power.

The first of two groups from Xcel deployed to Puerto Rico, and the employees will stay approximately 21 days before coming home, Britton said. "That's the max we're really allowed to work", he said.

"[Irizarry] will represent the urgent message from Central Florida and Florida's Puerto Rican community to President Trump and GOP congressional leaders: Approve immediately additional disaster recover resources for Florida, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Texas", the congresswoman said in a statement.

There were some concerns from the applicants, including what life and the public school system are like in Minnesota, Singh said.

"If it was us over here, I'm sure we would've gotten the help that we needed, so why can't we help Puerto Rico?"

And the interest from the recruitment campaign has not waned.

The line workers will work 12 to 16-hour shifts, seven days a week to install and fix equipment damaged by the storm.

Xcel Energy crews are expected to work in Caguas, a mountainous and remote region in the southeast area of the island.

Irizarry was one of many Tampa Bay area Puerto Ricans who channeled their energy following Hurricane Maria into mobilizing relief efforts and collecting nearly three million pounds of supplies for the island.

"We are looking forward to getting out there and getting as many lights on as quickly as we can, the safest we can", said Delwin Britton, a linework foreman for Xcel.
