SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO--SEPT. 28, 2017--After eight hours in line, Solymlar Duprey, age 47, holds her daughter Miabella Lawston, age 5, as they try to get on an evacuation cruise ship leaving San Juan. "The situation is so critical. There is no electricity, fuel, water," said Duprey. She was trying to locate her confirmation number to board the cruise ship. A Royal Caribbean cruise ship is evacuating over 2,000 people from Puerto Rico, St. John, and St. Thomas free of charge. People want to get off of the island, as there is a lack of fuel, electricity, running water, and in many cases job. (Carolyn Cole/Los Angeles Times)
