NEW YORK (WENY) – A contingent of 50 State Troopers left Saturday morning for Puerto Rico to help the island as it recovers from the devastation left behind by Hurricane Fiona.

The first wave of 50 Troopers, along with 69 New Jersey State Troopers, flew out of JFK airport bound for San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Troopers that departed this morning will be assisting the Puerto Rico Police Department with traffic control and other law enforcement missions as needed.

The second group of an additional 50 Troopers will also be deployed in the coming weeks.

The flight was donated by Jet Blue Airlines.
