Most Of Puerto Rico Has No Power, Many Without Water

(Ponce, PR-AP) – More than two-thirds of Puerto Rico residents are still without power as the island continues to rebound from a series of earthquakes.

Puerto Rico’s Electric Power Authority said it had restored service to only a third of its one-point-five-million customers. Also, a quarter million people do not have running water because of no power at those plants.

The Trump Administration approved a federal disaster declaration request, which provides some money to deal with debris removal and help for families that lost their homes.
