FEMA Deletes Information About Lack of Water and Electricity in Puerto Rico

On Wednesday, just 5 percent of Puerto Rico had electricity and only 50 percent had water. That information was readily available on the FEMA website as late as Wednesday night. But now it’s gone, while more positive information, like statistics about the percentage of hospitals open (92 percent) and the percentage of grocery stores open (65 percent), are still being made available.

 

The internet archiving tool The Wayback Machine gives us a look at precisely what was deleted. As you can see from an October 3rd snapshot, there’s information about water availability, among other things, under the header “Water/Wastewater Impacts.” But today, that section was scrubbed to include just one statistic: the percentage of waste water treatments that are functioning (64 percent).

The same is true of information about power restoration in Puerto Rico. On October 3rd the website showed statistics like the percentage of people with power on the island. That information has been deleted.

 

Well, that's one way to fix it - about as effective as "thoughts & prayers" at the very least. :rolleyes:

FEMA acknowledged it had removed the running tally early Thursday from its own website but said the same information was available elsewhere, including on a website maintained by the office of Puerto Rican Gov. Ricardo Rosselló.

Quote

"While some information was not included in yesterday's update to our website, at no point was the data not publicly available," FEMA spokesman William Booher said in a statement. "Reports suggesting an effort to remove any data points are simply erroneous."

The information was available. Go back to your hole-in-the-wall Pitcairn Island forum and enjoy.

Did FEMA remove the information, or not? Answer carefully. Think hard, but not so hard your brain overheats.

Look for the Trump admin to start solving more of their many, many self-inflicted problems by just erasing them from their websites. :lol:

Conspiracy theory liberals are coming out of the woodwork similar to cockroaches; and worse,  liberals.   The information was accessible and available, although the left-wing cretins here here couldn't see anything more than a RAWSTORY/gizmo  hack piece about a reputable agency that has, since it's inception has done a lot with relatively very little.

 

Your hatred of anything other than left-of-center has been noted and documented ad nauseam., Comrades. Few of any of you could name the  currenthead of FEMA or his/her qualifications even if it bit you on the arse.

The vote was 95-4 on Tuesday for Brock Long. He previously ran Alabama's Emergency Management Agency and served as that state's on-scene incident commander during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.

It's not all TRUMP, TRUMP TRUMP..

In August 2017, Long faced the first major natural disaster of his tenure in the form of Hurricane Harvey. He stated that the hurricane would likely be recorded for Texas as "the worst disaster the state's seen," with the recovery period expected to take "many years." Weeks before, he had told interviewers that his biggest concern was major hurricane preparedness.[8] Long received widespread praise for his handling of the federal response to Hurricane Harvey.[9]

It's about responsible men and women doing the best they can in a difficult situation.

You may want to give the man a break.
