ROCKPORT, TX - AUGUST 26: A destroyed apartment complex is seen after Hurricane Harvey passed through on August 26, 2017 in Rockport, Texas. Harvey made landfall shortly after 11 p.m. Friday, just north of Port Aransas as a Category 4 storm and is being reported as the strongest hurricane to hit the United States since Wilma in 2005. Forecasts call for as much as 30 inches of rain to fall in the next few days. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

A large amount of aid for Puerto Rico is reportedly untouched at the Port of San Juan, CNN reported Thursday.

A majority of the 9,500 containers of supplies at the port have not been moved due to a lack of truck drivers, a fuel shortage and damaged infrastructure after Hurricane Maria devastated the island.

Only 20 percent of truck drivers on the U.S. territory have reported back to work after the hurricane, making it difficult to deliver the food, water and medical supplies, a representative for Puerto Rican Gov. Ricardo Rosselló told CNN. Read more.
