08.29.18 - Rep. Ramos Decries Federal Emergency Relief Inaction After Report Shows Hurricane Maria Death Toll Nears 3,000

 

State Rep. Dan Ramos (D-Lorain) today responded to a new report that shows Hurricane Maria is responsible for the deaths of 2,975 American citizens in Puerto Rico, becoming one of the deadliest natural disasters in modern U.S. history.
