Port Authority workers return from Puerto Rico relief efforts with emotional stories

A group of 89 police officers and other staff of the Port Authority of NY & NJ have returned from helping to rebuild the San Juan airport after Hurricane Maria, writes Alison Fox for AMNY .

“Everybody put their best foot forward…no matter what the conditions were, which at times we would say were deplorable,” said Lt. Richard Munnelly of the Port Authority Police Department Emergency Services Unit. “We were very humbled by what we experienced there.”

The group stayed in the damaged airport and brought their own supplies with extra to give away.
