Evacuation

Exclusive interview with Andy Ramos, a Puerto Rican police officer who was evacuated from Vieques Island for medical treatment after Hurricane Maria. In this interview, Andy illustrates what's happening on this tiny island, is cut off from the rest of the world, with no water, no power, no Internet, or no cell service. The island doesn't have enough police, there's no gas to power the equipment needed to clean up, and many residents lost their homes. All the resources that the United States is sending seem to be assisting the main island of Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. Tiny Vieques has been forgotten, and Andy paints a pictures of a community that has banded together, but is getting very restless, and needs immediate disaster relief. Please donate to the ViequesLove relief fund today to help!

The tiny island of Vieques, Puerto Rico has been pretty much forgotten by the rest of the world, as the media shows pics of flooding in San Juan. The Vieques community members who are not on the island have come together to create resources for sharing information. There are four satellite phones on the island, and that’s how folks are being accounted for following this Category 5 hurricane that made its Puerto Rican landfall in Vieques. Sandy explains that most safe Vieques residents are not listed on the government’s lists because there’s no power, water or cell service to the island. Community-sponsored resources are more accurate.

Sandy's Clients Amanda and Matt

Garret and David Toasting Guests 2013

 

There are lots of ways to share your destination wedding travel information with your guests, but that’s only the first step. You have to make it as easy as possible for people to make their travel arrangements, accommodations reservations, and other travel plans, if they’re using your destination wedding as an excuse for a bigger vacation for themselves. In fact, guests are more likely to attend if they have options that allow them to build a trip that they want to go on, rather than simply booking to and from your wedding. Sandy says make it easy because the old adage is true: If you build it, they will come.
