In news on Puerto Rico, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, known as FEMA, is facing criticism after it was revealed that only a fraction of the 30 million meals slated to be sent to the island after Hurricane Maria was actually delivered. FEMA approved a $156 million contract for a one-woman company to deliver the 30 million meals. But in the end, FEMA canceled the contract after she delivered only 50,000 meals, in what FEMA called a logistical nightmare. FEMA has also faced criticism for approving a $30 million contract for emergency tarps and plastic sheeting—of which not a single tarp was ever delivered.
