"Maria came through on September 20, a Category 5, and devastated the entire island", she said.

Last month, FPL sent 100 company bucket trucks and electric equipment on three barges from the Port of Fort Pierce to Puerto Rico. Amino acids are critical for patients who are not able to eat and need to receive their nutrition intravenously.
