NEW YORK -- The National Puerto Rican Parade in New York turned into its usual boisterous celebration Sunday, but many participants also saw it as an occasion to express their more somber concerns over the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria. Along the parade route in the heart of Manhattan, people carried signs with tributes like "New York Stands with Puerto Rico," ″You will not be forgotten" and "Decolonize Puerto Rico." Many also waved Puerto Rican flags and danced as they made their way down Fifth Avenue. More than 1 million people lined the route along Fifth Avenue, CBS New York reports. The parade honored first responders and others who stepped up to help with both emergency efforts and ongoing recovery work. CBS News correspondent David Begnaud was also honored for his coverage of the island's recovery. Nearly nine months after Maria rocked the island, nearly 8,000 customers are still without power and it may be two more months before they get it.

NEW YORK -- There will be floats, musicians and brightly colored costumes when the Puerto Rican Day Parade makes its way along Fifth Avenue this Sunday, as there always are. But amid all the fun and celebration planned on Sunday, organizers and participants want to keep a spotlight on something serious: that months after Hurricane Maria roared over Puerto Rico, and as the next hurricane season arrives, the U.S. island territory is still struggling. "This is a year where Puerto Rico has been devastated," said Louis Maldonado, chairman of the board that oversees the parade and its affiliated events. "We need to keep that part of the conversation." In Depth: Puerto Rico's road to recovery Those watching the parade in person will see that in the marching contingents, including one made up of people who are on the U.S. mainland only because they were displaced from their homes on the island, he said. The parade will also honor first responders and others who stepped up to help … [Read more...] about Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York to spotlight post-hurricane struggle

NEW YORK - A team of microbiologists confirmed something New Yorkers have suspected for a long time: the wild mice that live in the city that never sleeps are furry little bundles of disease with feet. Nearly 1 in 4 mice running around New York City have potentially harmful, drug-resistant bacteria living inside them, according to new findings from Columbia University scientists published in the journal mBio. The year-long study of more than 400 mice collected from seven sites in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx found they carry bacteria responsible for mild to life-threatening gastroenteritis in humans, and some of these bacteria may be resistant to antibiotics, CBS New York reports. "From tiny studios to penthouse suites, New York City apartments are continually invaded by house mice," lead author Simon H. Williams, a research scientist at the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University, said in a statement. "Our study raises the possibility that serious … [Read more...] about New York City mice carry drug-resistant bacteria, study finds
