    20,000 Pallets Of Water Bottles Were Left In Puerto Rico, And No One Seems To Know Why

    An estimated 20,000 pallets of water bottles have apparently just been sitting
    yahoo.com

    ...Ottmar Chávez, the administrator of General Services in Puerto Rico (ASG), told HuffPost in a news release that it requested 20,000 pallets of water bottles in May from FEMA, which had reported it had a surplus of emergency supplies. The ASG then distributed some of the water to a dozen municipalities, but the water had apparently gone bad after sitting too long in the sun and heat.
