|Eric Holthaus has been talking a lot about it:|
A lot on his Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/EricHolthaus
A lot of sad stories that are only going to get worse and more tragic.
There's definitely not enough coverage of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. It should be a top story every night until real progress is made. We should be sending everything we can spare down there. At least in areas impacted by Harvey and Irma on the mainland US people can at least leave and get somewhere else with help. Aid can drive in. Puerto Rico doesn't have those options available to them. They need immediate help to save lives. Florida and Texas need help, but it's not of the same caliber right now.
