In a bizarre moment, a rare and disheartening find in Puerto Rico, in wake of the recent earthquakes earlier on Saturday, Jun. 18, 2020, numerous pallets of water and other boxes with emergency supplies were found at a warehouse in the earthquake-ravaged city of Ponce. The pallets of bedding, food, and medical supplies sat wrapped in plastic and unused in a warehouse for more than two years while Puerto Ricans suffered through the aftermath of a devastating hurricane and, recently, an earthquake. Now their discovery has triggered a political firestorm.
CNN Reports: Ponce, Puerto Rico (CNN) Puerto Rico Gov. Wanda Vázquez Garced fired the island’s emergency manager, hours after a warehouse filled with supplies was discovered.
