Gelzinis: Powerful pol left helpless as Maria hits Puerto Rico

In between a stream of meetings up at the State House yesterday morning, Jeff Sanchez, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, trolled the web and haunted Facebook, desperate for scraps of information about a monster storm “that’s ripping Puerto Rico apart right now.”

“It’s frightful, man, terrifying,” Sanchez told me. “I’ve got a blind aunt, my mother’s sister, who lives up in the hills above San Juan. And we can’t find out anything. My mother is worried sick.”
