Florida officials declare emergency, order residents to vacate houses

A state of emergency was declared on Saturday for the residents of Tampa Bay. This decision came due to a large leak from a toxic waste reservoir that holds ’millions of gallons of water containing phosphorous and nitrogen from an old phosphate plant.’ More than 300 homes around the reservoir received a text to evacuate their homes on an immediate basis.

This feels like the personification of corruption... Government officials not taking seriously the security of a public water supply screams underfunding. Underfunding is the result of some government official(s) prioritizing something else ahead of a safe & secure water supply for the citizenry. Was it tax cuts for the wealthy that siphoned off the maintenance & security budget for the water supply?

This is what happens when you defund the EPA. Thank DJT for that. However, the corporation responsible was able to pay great bonuses to top executives. So, that's good. Right?
