Earthquakes that started in December in Puerto Rico has left tension and devastation in the country.
Yesterday (Monday) night Puerto Ricans gathered on the streets of San Juan calling for the resignation of Governor Wanda Vazquez.
The protests comes days after hurricane relief supplies from two years ago were found in a warehouse.
The supplies are thought to be from 2017’s Hurricane Maria.
And residents were shocked as to why they were distributed.
Vazquez fired three members of her cabinet after the discovery, including the emergency management director.
And yesterday (Monday) officials began distributing the supplies.
Expired items are being disposed of, but everything else is being sent out to areas affected by the recent earthquakes.
The island’s Department of Justice will be investigating how the supplies ended up sitting there for years while citizens on island struggled.
Vazquez issued a statement saying it was “unforgivable” that the resources were kept in the warehouse and she also tweeted tha she respects the “constitutional right of citizens to demonstrate.”
