Donations sent to Puerto Rico were found rotting in parking lot

Last edited Sat Aug 11, 2018, 04:52 PM - Edit history (1)

Donated food sent to Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria were left to rot in a parking lot of a government facility, CBS News correspondent David Begnaud reported Friday. Additionally, about 10 containers filled with non-perishable supplies sat at the government facility for 11 months.

Video of supplies covered in rodent droppings was first posted by a Puerto Rican radio station. The trailers with the containers were locked Friday when CBS News arrived.

The National Guard said in a statement the donations that were highlighted were not distributed because they were expired. Stored items that were not expired would be distributed in the coming days, the National Guard said.

Nicolás Gautier, an official at the facility, told CBS News one of of the containers had "food for dogs, and apparently several of the boxes were broken. After the placement in the van, that brings a lot of rats and it infected everything."

2. This should stick to the moron like Katrina did with Bush,

but it won't. So far nothing negative sticks. He is more Teflon than Reagun ever was. In fact he is worse than Bush and Reagun combined...even if you added Nixon to the batch he is still worse than all three.

7. Disaster aid never seems to be

handled correctly or distributed properly, it gets left to ruin.
