MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Family and friends wanting to make sure their loved ones in Puerto Rico are okay, have places to call.
Puerto Rico has been left completely without power since Hurricane Maria hit the island just a day before.
Those looking for answers and have not heard from their loved ones can call a few numbers.
If you want to check on a loved one, call Puerto Rico’s Federal Affairs Administration at 1-202-778-0710.
For those who know someone who needs help on the island, call 787-777-0940. This is a radio station that is receiving emergency calls.
Another number you can call is the hurricane hotline at 1-877-976-2400. A tourism company set up the hotline for hotels, guests and industry partners.
Callers are asked to be patient and keep calling if the line is busy. Also, do not hang up if you are on hold.
Another option is to use American Red Cross’s website to search for people who have already registered themselves as safe. Click here to search for your loved one.
