Tell the truth about Puerto Rico’s disaster after hurricane Maria

via Río revuelto | El Nuevo Día

Local Agency (CSA) in charge of inspections after hurricane Maria has been absent in the performance of its expected duties. The agency’s head went on vacation for “exhaustion”?

As a result:

  • 90% of schools have still to open
  • horrible anecdotes of people who died as a direct/indirect result of the hurricane, but mysterously remain unlinked to the event
  • an abundant number of leptospirosis have appeared, but the island’s secretary of health, Rafael Rodriguez has disappeared for days
  • the legal system closed for days after the storm and after a month, still is partially functioning
  • in the cover of darkness, crime is rampant, but the local Superintendent of Police, Michelle Hernandez, can not be found

Can anybody justify this chaos in an island that was supposed to be a showroom of the Caribbean?

* en la oscuridad, el crimen es desenfrenado, pero la Superintendente de Policía local, Michelle Hernández, no puede ser encontrada

¿Alguien puede justificar este caos en una isla que se suponía que era una sala de exposición del Caribe?

I love media and communication, as well as digital technology. I write and speak fluently in Spanish and English. I was born in New York, but was sent to Puerto Rico at an early age, where I lived until drafted by the U.S. army. Upon returning from an honorable discharge, I found Puerto Rico small and limited at the time. I moved to Boston where I pursued musical studies and later worked as a musician, teacher, and speech-pathologist in New York. I am currently still interested in world politics, social justice, and income inequality. Health and wellness are essential to survive and thrive. I am working on patience and skills necessary to keep learning.
