Puerto Rico rebuilds after Hurricane Fiona; Florida continues search and rescue operations after Hurricane Ian

The 2022 Atlantic Hurricane season isn’t over until November 1

U.S. President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill jetted off to Puerto Rico on Monday.

The president pledged $60 million in federal funding for the island which was ravaged by hurricane Fiona weeks ago.

“We’re with you, I mean it—all of America’s with you as you receive and recover and rebuild,” he said.

“We’re investing in Puerto Rico’s roads, bridges, public transit, ports, airports, water safety and high-speed Internet.

Meanwhile, back on the U.S. mainland down in Florida Governor Ron DeSantis talked about the search and rescue operations that continue after Florida’s southwestern coast was hit last week by Hurricane Ian.

“So far we’ve had more than 1,900 rescues with more than 1,000 personnel having gone door-to-door to 65 different structures to check on occupants and those are mostly structures in the really hard head areas—the barrier islands and the like.”

Gov. DeSantis added that their division of emergency management is continuing to bring large quantities of water, food, and other substances into the area to help everybody get by.

He said, “we’re also distributing tarps for the roofs—although I will tell you one thing, I’ve noticed the new construction in Florida seemed to have held up very well.”

Florida’s office of emergency management says about half of a million residents are still without power—and that they are working to restore it by Sunday.

Why Elon Musk was booed on stage

New Twitter boss Elon Musk did not receive the warmest welcome at Dave Chappelle’s recent comedy show

Elon Musk appeared embarrassed at Dave Chappelle’s recent San Francisco comedy show, when the audience began booing him.

A mixed reaction from audience members at the show. Some cheered as Chappelle welcome Musk onto the stage, but it was impossible to notice many booing him.

It’s no surprise though, given San Francisco is the home of Twitter HQ, and the place where Musk just fired thousands of staff.

It comes as the controversial new boss makes drastic changes to the social media platform.

 “Sounds like some of those people you fired are in the audience….

Don’t say nothing. You hear that sound, Elon? That’s the sound of pending civil unrest.”

After trying to joke his way around the awkwardness for Musk, Chappelle finished the show with some words of wisdom and a prayer.

“Booing is not the best thing you can do. I wish everybody in this auditorium the joy of feeling free and may your pursuit of happiness set you free. Amen.”

However, Musk has since responded to the booing from the crowd insisting it “was 90% cheers & 10% boos (except during quiet periods), but, still, that’s a lot of boos, which is a first for me in real life (frequent on Twitter).”
