  • A photographer claimed to have discovered a stockpile of bottled water sitting on a tarmac in Puerto Rico.
  • A year later, the photographer said the water was still there.
  • The Federal Emergency Management Agency reportedly told CBS News correspondent David Begnaud that it provided the water to the central government in response to Hurricane Maria in 2017, but it is unclear what kept the water from being distributed.
  • Many of the deaths in the aftermath of Maria were attributed to power outages, and limited access to heath care and clean drinking water.

A photographer working for a Puerto Rican police agency reportedly caught a glimpse of a stockpile of bottled water on a runaway in the city of Ceiba. The water was believed to be part of relief efforts after Hurricane Maria wrought devastation on the US territory in September 2017.

A year later, the photographer, Abdiel Santana, said the stockpile of what could be millions of water bottles were still standing on the tarmac.
