Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) officials said Monday that rescue and recovery efforts in Puerto Rico are advancing, but admitted there’s “a long way to go” before normal life is fully restored on the island.

“The bottom line is, what I saw is progress being made today,” said FEMA Administrator Brock Long in a call with reporters. “The other thing I saw is that we have a long way to go in recovery.”

Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are recovering from the effects of hurricanes Irma and Maria, which hit the islands last month. Read more at The Hill.
