Puerto Rico power blackout the biggest in US history

24 October 2017

One month after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, the bulk of the US island territory is still without electrical power, a blackout that is the most extensive in modern US history. Some 3 million people are without electricity, and there are predictions that some remote parts of the mountainous island will not see power restored until next June.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. 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!!!

      • Horty, How long will it all take to bring Puerto Rico back…..Yesterday’s New Jersey newspapers; Five years after this month’s anniversary of storm Sandy, Moody’s just upgraded the credit ratings of the three major hit counties of Atlantic, Monmouth, & Ocean back to pre-Sandy ratings, AND, while Christie reports “only” 1000 homes still not restored, there are still 2000 unrestored homes. So hold on to your hat for a long, long ride in Puerto Rico unless we have some political awakening!!! All it would take is one crackerjack general like MacArthur in Japan & Eisenhower in Germany after WWII to put Puerto Rico back on its feet!!!!!!! Phil
