Electrical Blackout in Puerto Rico…ALL of Puerto Rico

Blatant corruption and bad administration … “WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GOVERNMENT INVESTIGATION? There is a bitter irony in this. The blackouts are occurring even though people are paying 300% more for their electricity in Puerto Rico than in New York City, and the rates are scheduled to rise by another 15-20% over the next six months.” .. SMH!!


“The entire island is without power,” said Angel Crespo, director of Puerto Rico’s fire department.

The entire island of Puerto Rico was left without electrical power yesterday (Wednesday, Sept. 21) due to a fire at the Aguirre electrical plant. This caused a chain reaction throughout the island…water service shut down, highways jammed, train service was canceled, and 15 more fires ignited across Puerto Rico, as a result of malfunctioning electric generators.

Fires broke out in the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel, and the mayor’s office in Cataño.

Government offices, universities and businesses closed early, which created even more chaos on the roads and highways. A policeman trying to direct traffic was run over, and taken to the hospital.

Colapso total del sistema de la AEE en Puerto Rico (A complete collapse of the electrical and energy system of Puerto Rico) was the headlinein the island’s largest newspaper, El Nuevo Dia.

Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

  2. Good reminder of how much citified people are dependent upon the grid, the Matrix stranglehold. Are Puerto Rico’s electrical systems government run, or privately operated? Usually when prices rise out of control it means privatization.

    • The electrical power in Puerto Rico is government run. They are bracing for privatization!! There’s a new law on it’s way … PROMESA … to ‘help’ PR out of its massive debt. Rather … to pay the hedge fund owners its money. Not pretty!!
