Irma Knocks Out Puerto Rico's Ad Industry

Irma Knocks Out Puerto Rico's Ad Industry

Still, some continued to work until 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday to wrap up creative and get it to clients and media, says CEO Edgardo Rivera, speaking from the patio of his home, where the power has gone out. She figured they would not lose electricity or water.

Puerto Rico residents could be left without power for four to six months after Hurricane Irma grazes the island, according to The Miami Herald.

Federal and local officials in Puerto Rico are concerned that underfunded environmental agencies on the island will face significant new challenges as a result of Hurricane Irma, expected to hit the island late September 6.

Irma, the most powerful Atlantic hurricane on record that carried 180 maximum sustained winds into Thursday morning, will threaten the Florida coast on Sunday morning, according to current path forecasts.

McLaughlin said he had spoken to some of his fellow overseas territory heads of government "and assured them of our thoughts and prayers, as well as our commitment to supporting them in the wake of the storm".

Isabel Rulian, co-founder and managing director of ConPRmetido, a non-profit group, said her group had formed an assistance fund to help with rebuilding and recovery in Culebra at HelpPRdespacito.com.

He said most homes have concrete roofs in Puerto Rico.
