Several months after Hurricane Maria demolished much of the Puerto Rican power grid, the island has yet again, suffered another island-wide power outage.
The latest outage comes less than a week after a tree knocked out power to 870,000 customers.
“The entire electrical system in Puerto Rico collapses AGAIN!” San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz tweeted.
Puerto Rico is home to roughly three million U.S citizens, and for months has been trying to recover from the damages done by Hurricane Maria.
Puerto Rico’s power authority reported that it could take roughly twenty-four to thirty-six hours for the power to be restored.
The most recent blackout, prior to the aforementioned one, was in February of 2018.
