12 Million Water Bottles Found Rotting In Puerto Rico
Yulin Cruz still failing to do her job…
Bottled water goes bad quickly in the hot sun because the heat and ultraviolet will release carcinogens from the plastic bottle into the water. The same reason you should never drink from that bottle that’s been sitting in your car for three days during the summer.
The people who withheld things from people during the time of a natural disaster should be jailed. Disgraceful!

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz has repeatedly attacked President Donald Trump over the U.S. government’s response in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, even as 12 million bottles of water were discovered this week rotting on an airport runway in Puerto Rico.
BuzzFeed News reports that “Justo Hernández, deputy federal coordinating officer of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), told reporters that the 19,841 pallets of water were left on the runway at José Aponte de la Torre Airport and that as a result, ‘some of that water was spoiled.’”
