With their help, the developers of the innovation labs of Google, the parent company Google was able to partially restore cell communication in some areas of Puerto Rico affected by hurricane "Irma" and "Maria". Operations are continuing and local authorities are already allowed to use the balloons to Google for the provision of telecommunications services. Now the developers are working on further integration and adjustment of the equipment.

The Developers have offered their services on 29 September, stating that similarly was able to restore the cellular connection, and with it the work of many services in Peru, where previously, due to heavy rains came down telecommunication towers and other equipment.

Despite the fact that the debugging continues for several days, the Federal communications Commission of the US reported that work is still very much, because in some places cellular and Internet restored only by 20%, and in some regions they have not appeared.

The Balloons Project Loon are controlled by artificial intelligence, self-adapting to the altitude and weather conditions, choose routes and catch updrafts of air, while continuing to remain in the specified locations. Most importantly — all properly set up and deliver if necessary, more «balls».

Their willingness to help Puerto Rico expressed by Elon Musk, who promised to provide energy storage systems Powerwall local affected areas.
