United States judge: FEMA vouchers for Puerto Rican evacuees can end

The remarks came just a day after the Puerto Rican government revealed that 2,975 people died as a effect of the hurricane's devastation, while Trump told reporters on Wednesday that his administration had done a "fantastic job" on Puerto Rico.

GWU looked at deaths that occurred between Maria's landfall in Puerto Rico on September 20, 2017, and deaths deemed in excess of Puerto Rico's normal mortality rate through February 2018.

He echoed one finding in the report - that doctors "lacked awareness" on how to appropriately certify deaths attributed to natural disasters.

A federal judge ruled on Thursday that temporary housing given to hundreds of Puerto Ricans displaced by Hurricane Maria will end in September.

Central Florida accepted an influx of Puerto Ricans after the storm, though there is no exact count of how many people moved from the island to Florida in the last 11 months.

Power has not yet been fully restored to Puerto Rico almost a year after the hurricane, and outages remain common.

The same thing happened with the death count and other relief efforts, said Blondet. They also said the public health system needs to be strengthened, though Goldman said they don't know yet whether those weaknesses contributed to storm-related deaths.

"Especially between November and December, we were very concerned". Thus, like other jurisdictions that are part of the US, the death certification process can lead to an undercount of deaths related to disasters like Hurricane Maria.

The study also found that government emergency plans in place when Maria hit were not designed for hurricanes greater than a Category 1.
