#2 Send them to the Carolinas - problem solved.

#3 It is unclear where the breakdown that caused the bottles to never be distributed was caused.

Since Democrats are in charge there, I'm going with incompetence.

#4 Add some malice; starving your own population is quite totalitarian; exempli gratia, African Liberation Theory.

#5 Unexpectedly™... Indeed. Corrupt officials discover that no one will buy their government bonds. They have to stop paying for anything that doesn't bring in the graft that keeps them in power.
...So power lines don't get repaired, infrastructure crumbles, and Disaster Relief Supplies rot in a warehouse. Unless somebody hid them their hoping to sell them later...

#6 If I recall correctly, it was more important for the mayor of San Juan to get in front of the cameras to say nasty things about Trump than to supervise distribution of the water bottles.

Do I have the priorities right?

#7 Has that mayor gone up for reelection since? It'll say a lot about Puerto Rico one way or the other when that happens.

She had time in a hurricane to get a professionally silk-screened t-shirt and baseball cap trashing Trump

#11 Puerto Ricans don't drink water.

#12 They do drink coffee.

#13 They saw what Katrina did to W, so they tried to Katrina Trump.

#14 Nobody steals free stuff. Put a sign on boxes “water $10 per box” and they will be gone in a few days.

You get two more guesses, Raj. All three together would probably be a complete answer.
