Statistics showing that half of Puerto Ricans have access to drinking water — and only 5 percent have electricity — disappeared Thursday from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s web page, the Washington Post reported.

The statistics that remain on the FEMA page support President Donald Trump's assertions that the island is making strides toward full recovery:

  • 14,000 federal workers are on the ground in Puero Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
  • All airports, federally maintained ports and post offices are open.
  • More than 30 miles of roadway have been cleared.
  • About 65 percent of grocery stores have reopened, along with nearly all hospitals and dialysis centers.
  • And 64 percent of wastewater treatment plants are working on generator power.
