Just to weigh in. My DILs family is in Puerto Rico. They are all homeowners, in most cases, without mortgages, but they all have insurance. The thing is, you can have the money to repair damage, but that doesn’t mean you can get the materials or the labor, or the electricity, or the diesel to run generators, in order to get your home back to normal.

My DILs father happens to be a contractor. His workers were out of communication for months. He had to drive a van over washed out roads to the homes of his employees to pick them up for work. This is just one example of how difficult it was to get things done.

I really don’t have an opinion about displaced PRs in FL, except it’s no different than any of us moving to a different state. Freeloaders are going to be everywhere. I’m sure there are plenty of Puerto Rican’s who would rather go home if they could. Maybe we’d save $$ if we just gave them plane tickets and a few bucks.
