m sl io s PALM BEACH POST 9A . WED. SEPT. 20, 1989 TIT nun PC :e eitort to aid islands . organized . Tie Associated Press MIAMI The American Red Coss organized its biggest domestic relief effort in four years, and the Coast Guard dispatched ships and planes Tuesday to bring emergency assistance to Puerto Rican victims of Hurricane Hugo. v Workers gathered blankets, cots, food, medicine and other supplies for shipment to Puerto Rico. "We're working with the Air Force, trying to get our supplies on their planes," said Brian Ruberry, a; Red Cross spokesman in Washington. "The problem right now, of course, is that the airports are closed, and even when they reopen, we don't know what size planes they'll be able to accommodate." The Federal Emergency Management Agency, the nation's lead agency for disaster relief, launched a C-141 cargo plane loaded with government relief workers and communications gear from Mar-tinsburg, W.Va., bound for St. Croix in; the U.S. Virgin Islands, where the National Guard reported damage to 90 percent of the buildings. Coast Guard C-130s from Florida; South Carolina and Guantana-mo Bay, Cuba, headed to San Juan with emergency supplies, while two cutters assisted with communications and relief efforts. In Miami, the government tourist office for Puerto Rico was flooded with calls from people who couldn't reach relatives at home, but regional manager Teresa Morales said she hasn't been able to reach anyone either. "We're in the same boat," she said. "I do have all of my relatives down there, and I haven't been able to get through." Damage put at hundreds of millions PUERTO RICOfrom 1A and Vieques, which were the first to be lashed by the hurricane before it roared up the northeast coast and headed northwest above San Juan. In Culebra, an emergency clinic had to be set up because the hurricane nearly destroyed the local hospital, Hernandez Colon said. Dozens of people were injured, he said. Mark McGrath, 35, a yacht captain, said two people were blown off boats and drowned when Hugo roared through the Ensenada Honda Bay, sinking 50 boats and blowing 125 on shore. , 'I've been through four different hurricanes, and this was by far the worst I've seen," McGrath said. "Any trees that are still standing in Culebra have no leaves. There are dead animals all over the place." Hernandez Colon said security forces had been dispatched to prevent the widespread looting that broke out in San Juan and other municipalities nearly as soon as the wind died down Monday afternoon. Rebellion put down About 75 teenagers staged an unsuccessful mutiny at a San Juan juvenile home early Monday, hoping to take advantage of the hurricane to escape, state Rep. Jorge de Castro said. Dozens of police put down the rebellion, he said. Roofs were torn off dozens of homes as far as the eye could see in the heavily populated neighborhood of La Perla, and windows were shattered in many luxury hotels. Stretches of Puerto Rico's most spectacular beaches were littered with debris. Balconies were torn off Spanish colonial houses in Old San Juan, falling on parked cars or splintering in the streets. Although the damage was widespread, officials breathed a sigh of relief that the storm didn't cut directly across the island as they had feared. "Thank God, the damages are not as great as we expected,' Civil Defense Director Heri-berto Acevedo said. Most power lines down At the Civil Defense Center emergency office, in a massive Spanish colonial fort in downtown San Juan, officials were forced to work with flashlights Monday night because the hurricane blew down : power lines throughout eastern j Puerto Rico. I Eighty percent of the country 1 had no electricity, Acevedo said. Residents carrying possessions they had salvaged from their homes stepped over power lines that had fallen across many San Juan sidewalks. The storm tore the roof off a wing of the Ashford Memorial Hospital in San Juan, and several other hospitals and clinics throughout the city were heavily damaged, officials said. Dozens of people who had sought refuge in a government shelter were forced to move to an adjoining building when the hurricane ripped off the roof. "It's catastrophic," said Edwin Otero, a government rescue worker, between calls late Monday. "There are trees on roofs." When The Hair Roots ARE DEAD, ITS ALREADY TOO LATE.
