Oswego family waiting to hear from daughter after Hurricane Maria

They lost contact after the island of Dominica was hit

Oswego, NY (WSYR-TV) - A mother in Oswego is among those still waiting to connect with victims of Hurricane Maria. The small island of Dominica was decimated over a week ago, not long after a Central New York woman moved there.

Christine Breslawski-Skubis' daughter, Jenna moved to the island at the end of August.

Since then, Breslawski-Skubis has sought comfort in social media sites, hoping connections will help her find answers.

"Everything is second and third hand and it's the way things are right now because communication lines are down and will be for a while. But we want to have direct contact with them," said Breslawski-Skubis.

Breslawski-Skubis has been told by others that her 26-year-old daughter is okay, but she wants to hear her daughter's voice.

"I want to hear them say they're good...that they're okay. You know anything we can do to help them. You know what is it that we can do from this end to get them any kind of assistance they need?" said Breslawski-Skubis.

Jenna isn't alone on the island, she is staying with her boyfriend Ben, who is also an Oswego County native. Breslawski-Skubis says his family is also waiting to hear from him.
