IN THE DARK

All of Puerto Rico Without Power Amid Hurricane Maria

All of Puerto Rico lost power on Wednesday, just hours after Hurricane Maria made landfall on the island as a Category 4 storm, ABC News reported. The Puerto Rico Office of Emergency Management Agency said that anyone with electricity is relying on a backup generator. Ricardo Ramos, the director of the island's only electrical company, told reporters last month that storm damage to the U.S. territory's electrical system could leave it without power for three to four months. The National Hurricane Center warned that the situation is “extremely dangerous and life-threatening.” The cyclone is forecast to move away from Puerto Rico in the next few hours and head westward towards the Dominican Republic.
