Puerto Rico fires Emergency Director after finding warehouse full of wasted aid

Puerto Rico Gov. Wanda Vazquez has fired the island’s director of emergency management after officials found a warehouse full of emergency supplies dating back to 2017's Hurricane Maria.
The warehouse was initially investigated for damage following recent earthquakes in the area, and investigators found thousands of items of supplies, including food, water, diapers, and medicine that were intended to help those affected by Hurricane Maria.
The warehouse is located in the Guancha de Ponce sector in the city of Ponce. Ponce Mayor Mayita Melendez denied having any knowledge of the supplies sitting in the warehouse and said that the city did not manage the storage facility.

Puerto Rico's government is very corrupt but the Leftist are very unaware of that fact.

So bottled water is now a factor in the right wing conspiracy files.

What to make of this important development.

Puerto Rico was to busy counting the dead they could not find and just conveniently forgot about the aid for the people.

"There are thousands of people who have made sacrifices to bring help to the south, and it is unforgivable that resources have been kept in a warehouse," Vazquez said in a statement.

The governor gave officials 48 hours to investigate why the supplies never were delivered to those who needed them.

I was reading about this earlier today. I personally don't see a problem with it if the supplies where being handed out when asked. If they where denying the supplies to people than I see a problem. But from what the article at least the one I was reading it sounds like it was just not all used back when it was received and put into storage.
