Update from Puerto Rico

In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma’s barrage of Puerto Rico, the Superior for the Jesuit Community in Puerto Rico sent the following update this morning, Sept. 7: 

Thank you for your prayers and concern. Our Jesuit community and apostolates did not suffer any apparent structural damage. 

We were truly blessed that Hurricane Irma passed north of the island. Still, some areas in Puerto Rico sustained winds of up 75 to 100 miles per hour. 

Our schools, Academia San Ignacio and Colegio San Ignacio, as well as our parish community, have some damaged trees and lots of debris on the ground. Roads around the neighborhood are passable but still dangerous. 

Most of the island is without electricity. However, it seems to be because the power authority shut down the system in order to avoid possible damage. 

We here in Puerto Rico are exceedingly grateful for having passed through the hurricane relatively unscathed. However, it makes us more conscious of the suffering that our neighboring islands are experiencing. 

Muchas gracias por todo el apoyo y las oraciones. We now turn our prayers towards those who may be in the path of hurricane Irma. Abrazos solidarios

Fr. Flavio I. Bravo, SJ
AMDG

If we receive additional information about damage caused by Hurricane Irma, and how to help the school and families recover, we will post the information here.
