(NEWSINFERNO.COM) — /SNIP/ According to Puerto Rican Governor Luis Fortuno, the blast has cost the Caribbean island at least $6.4 million. Over the weekend, President Barack Obama declared a state of emergency, paving the way for Puerto Rico to receive federal aid.
Yesterday, agents from the FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were finally able to enter the Caribbean Petroleum facility to begin investigating the cause of the blast. As we reported previously, the site is being treated as a crime scene. Such concerns were raised on Friday after graffiti with the message “Boom, fire, RIP, Gulf” was found scrawled inside a highway tunnel in San Juan. According to the New York Times, similar messages were found at two other sites in and around the city. [emphasis PID]
