NEW YORK– New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says he will spend two days in Puerto Rico with a team of engineers and state workers to see how New York can best help out the island after a series of devastating earthquakes.  Cuomo says the earthquakes have added to the misery for many in the U.S. territory, who have not recovered from the damage done by Hurricane Maria.  Meanwhile, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is sending fifteen building inspectors, seven emergency managers and two mental health professionals to help out in Puerto Rico.  The mayor says the city has to pitch in, because the White House is not acting fast enough to help the people hurt by the earthquakes.
