Along with much needed water, Stein brought 10.000 pairs of trousers donated by designer Calvin Klein. But five water pumps from the United States were perhaps the most welcome arrival in the capital and surrounding areas which have been without running water since Sunday. All live pumps at Carraizo Darn, the city’s main water supply. were flooded in the storm and must be replaced.

Gov Rafael Hernandez Colon said Friday that two new pumps would be installed at the Carraizo station by today, and all five would be in place by Monday. With 80 percent of electricity restored in the capital. lack of water remained the most critical problem despite the deployment of water trucks.

In St. Croix, Virgin Islands, military police sent on Bush’s orders restored calm to the streets after four days of looting and violence in the aftermath of the hurricane. which struck late Sunday.
