PUERTO RICO – Over 400 pairs of empty shoes appeared in San Juan, Puerto Rico, outside the capital building on Friday.

It is a growing memorial to the hundreds of people presumed dead during or in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. This comes after a Harvard report published in the New England Journal of Medicineestimated that there were up to 4,600 more deaths than usual in the three months after Hurricane Maria.

Some independent experts questioned the methods and the number in that study.

Puerto Rico’s Institute of Statistics announced Friday that it has sued the U.S. territory’s health department and demographic registry, to obtain data on the number of deaths following Hurricane Maria, the AP reports.

Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello told CNN there would be “hell to pay” if officials do not release the death statistics.

The government released additional information Friday, saying an additional 1,397 overall deaths were reported in the aftermath of the storm, from September to December 2017, according to the Washington Post.

Officials have not released the cause of death in any of those cases.

A spokeswoman for the island’s health department, which oversees the demographic registry, did not respond to the AP’s request for comment.

Many officials and people in Puerto Rico believe the official death toll of 64 from Hurricane Maria is severely underestimated.

In February, Puerto Rico announced that a team of experts from George Washington University would lead an independent review of the official death count.

The group’s preliminary report was due before hurricane season began June 1, but the team has been granted more time. 
                                               

Az, Thank you for posting this. 

This is a tragic sign of things, far worse, to come due to Catastrophic Climate Change. 

I could not agree more. This is a vowel away from genocide. The kindest thing that could be said is that the death toll is a direct consequence of intentional neglect.

I will never forget that they sent the hospital ship "Comfort," and anchored the Bi tch offshore, the better to let innocents die. Fuc king Racist assholes...


You are exactly right. However, the mindset you described is not limited to the racists. 

The Nuevo Dia newspaper down there just posted a headline saying that, at last count, 68% of the those who died from Hurricane Maria were of "advanced age" (Edad Avanzada).

I guess that is anyone over 65. The hurricane helped eliminate a lot of pensioners. I imagine those fine upstanding banksters 😈 down there are pleased as punch to have less "useless eater" Puerto Ricans to interfere with their austerity measures to "help the economy" (the banksters 😈 are running the place, thanks to a US Court decision during the Obama Adminstration). Never mind that the pensioners who perished were school teachers or firemen or cops or road crews that worked 30 years to get that pension. So it goes.  :(
But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou
hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Acts 8:20
