Nevada Sends Law Enforcement Rangers to Puerto Rico

Bureau of Land Management Law Enforcement Rangers from Nevada are currently deployed to San Juan, Puerto Rico and are assisting with relief and search and rescue efforts in the wake of the strongest hurricane to hit the Caribbean Island and U.S. territory in nearly a century.

Rangers Bill Hart from the Ely District and Paul Zohovetz, from the Carson City District, arrived in San Juan prior to Hurricane Maria, which blew ashore Wednesday morning as a Category 4 storm with winds of 155 mph.  Maria destroyed hundreds of homes, knocked out power across the entire island of 3.4million people and turned some streets into raging rivers. It is unknown how long the rangers will be on assignment but they plan on staying as long as necessary to assist anyway they can.
