Puerto Rico’s top emergency management official resigned on Friday.

Abner Gomez, the director of the Puerto Rico Emergency Management Agency, left the post on Friday amid the country’s lagging response efforts following Hurricane Maria, Gov. Ricardo Rosselló (D) announced.

Officials revealed in October that Gomez was on a two-week vacation despite the American territory’s struggles to recover following the storm. The governor’s office at the time said he was “exhausted.”

Rosselló on Friday extended “our gratitude to Abner Gomez for his availability and work over the past months at the helm of these important agencies,” he said in a statement. “I wish him the greatest of success in his future endeavors.”
