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.
