SEARCHING FOR LOVED ONES

Check the Red Cross’ registry if you’re looking for loved ones.

Federal Affairs Administration is asking people to do the following:

▪  Contact the island’s disaster relief team by e-mailing maria1@prfaa.pr.gov

Because of high volume, leaders are asking that you only send one email — no follow-ups — unless the status of your loved one has changed.

Include your contact information and as many details about your family member or friend as possible.

 ▪  Call the Washington D.C. office at 202-800-3133 or 202-778-0710
 ▪  Call the island’s local radio station WIPR at 787-777-0940

▪  You can also try to find family and friends via the American Red Cross
