iStock/Thinkstock(SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico) — San Juan mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz called Tuesday’s announcement of new death toll estimates in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria “a day of collective mourning” for the weather-battered island.“It was a very painful day… but it came to put a number on what we already know – that the total death toll was not correct and that the government was not telling the truth,” Yulin Cruz told ABC News.Researchers at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health estimated that between Sept. 20 and Dec. 31, there were 4,645 “excess deaths,” according to the report in the New England Journal of Medicine.The researchers say the death toll may be more than 70 times the official estimate. Puerto Rico’s official government death toll currently stands at 64.“This number [is] for “when government don’t do what they are supposed to do,” the mayor said as she pointed to a hat bearing the numbers 4,645 as a reminder of the hurricane’s deadly toll. (flipped this sentence around).“It isn’t the smiles of the ones I got to that will haunt me forever, it is the pain of those we didn’t get to that will stick with me forever,” an emotional Yulin Cruz said.The Harvard report relied on household surveys to generate the estimate, which researchers said had a margin of error of plus or minus 3,852, meaning the actual number of deaths could be as low as 793 or as high as 8,498. However. Researchers said the likely figure is about 5,000. The mayor of Puerto Rico’s capital has been a fierce critic of the Trump administration. In the days following Maria, Trump visited the island and said “every death is a horror.“But if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina, and you look at the tremendous hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people that died, and you look at what happened here,” he continued, “sixteen versus literally thousands of people.” “Not one tweet from a man that tweets about the sunrise…to say, people of Puerto Rico, we are sorry, “ a frustrated Yulin Cruz said.“Don’t accept the blame, because Lord knows he is incapable of doing,” she said of Trump. “But just say sorry, I’m sorry that lives were lost.”The Atlantic hurricane season starts on Friday – something that Yulin Cruz says the island is not equipped to handle again.“Puerto Rico is not prepared…we’ve learned about the things we fell short and we are in a better position to handle them,” she said. “We hope that we do not have to handle them anymore,” she said.Her “4,645“ hat is just one of the small reminders she keeps more than eight months after Maria.“I wrote with chalk on my wall ‘NEVER AGAIN’ and the number 4,645,” she said.“These are people – grandparents and mothers and children that will never be able to live because others weren’t able to help them survive.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

THE added emphasis of safety will underline the second round of the 2019 National Drag Racing championship.Billed for the South Dakota Drag Strip, Timehri on June 23 and organised by the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club (GMR&SC), the event will feature more safety for fans, marshals and competitors.According to GMR&SC vice-president Hansraj Singh, this comes as the committee is realising that the machines are getting faster and faster.“We would have extended the strip to a full quarter-mile and what we saw in round one, we are expecting to have faster cars to participate because they can have more power generated because of the lengthened track and better breaking and with the installation of the launch pad, better starts,” Singh shared.As the sport grows and Hansraj believes it will benefit Guyana greatly, GMR&SC, he pledged, will maintain their safety standards. “Once the cars are going faster, then definitely safety becomes a bigger issue. Safety is of utmost paramountcy at this time and we are constantly upgrading the facility (South Dakota) to make it safe for everyone including the fans, racers and marshals.Meanwhile, last week, president of the GMR&SC, Rameez Mohamed, confirmed via correspondence to the media that Team Mohamed’s newly acquired white Nissan GT-R is set to finally make its competitive debut at the event after missing out in March due to transmission issues.Over 100 competitors are expected to register for the event which will see the driver with the fastest reaction win $20 000.More importantly, Del Ice Co has sponsored cash prizes for the fastest 10-second ($200 000), 11-second ($150 000) and 12-second ($100 000) cars.Sponsors for the event include Platinum Car Show, KFC, Supreme Bets, R.
