(Portland, OR)  --  A group of Portland-based aid workers are in Puerto Rico helping hurricane victims.  Workers with Mercy Corps arrived in Puerto Rico early this week as part of a two-month relief effort.  The group says they're focusing on short-term recovery first by handing out money to victims so they can buy food and water.  After that, the workers say they'll get to work on long-term recovery efforts to help stabilize the economy however they can.

Help Puerto Rico

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:





  • Click on the link for the latest conditions on the mountain passes.


  • Intersection of NW Broadway Street and NW Delaware for waterline replacement project, road closures with detours clearly marked for thru traffic, 7 a.m. – 4 p.m. daily with roads opened nightly. Motorists are encouraged to avoid this area and use Bond Street and Wall Street.


  • Nels Anderson Road between Nels Anderson Place and Brandis Court, single northbound shoulder closure will be in effect, two-way traffic to be maintained. Project completion expected December 2017.
