CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland 19 News anchor Lydia Esparra is planning on traveling to Puerto Rico early next week to bring supplies to her family members and to get a perspective of the damage caused by Hurricane Maria.

Puerto Rico relying on donations, relief and resolve to overcome hurricane devastation

Lydia has collected 39 boxes of donations.

She was planning on leaving early Friday morning on a Delta flight from Cleveland Hopkins; however, there was a problem over the number of boxes.

Her cousins will be meeting her at the airport in Puerto Rico and getting the boxes of supplies Lydia has collected to her relatives, including her mother and father.
