President Joe Biden assured residents of storm-ravaged Puerto Rico that the island would receive “every single dollar” in promised federal aid as he surveyed the damage from Hurricane Fiona. 

“The people of Puerto Rico keep getting back up with resilience and determination,” Biden said Monday as he toured storm damage in Ponce, one of the hardest-hit areas of the island. “And you deserve every bit of help your country can give you.”
