- EPA warns Puerto Ricans to stop drinking from Superfund sites (but everything's fine!)
By Andrew Freedman - Thursday Oct 12, 2017
It's been three weeks since Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico, and conditions are deteriorating due to a pervasive lack of access to food, water, and electricity. The governor of the territory has reported several deaths from leptospirosis, a treatable bacterial illness contracted from consuming contaminated water.
Despite the presence of 19,000 U.S. personnel responding to the disaster in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, many cities outside San Juan remain cut off from the rest of the island, with no access to basic services.
On Wednesday, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), quietly issued a startling warning that indicates the seriousness of the situation. Read more...More about Climate, Science, Extreme Weather, Puerto Rico, and Environmental Protection Agency
