762 Conchobair >Puerto Rico's electric grid was crumbling amid lack of maintenance and a dwindling staff even before Maria and Irma hit the island. The territory's infrastructure has gone neglected for years, and its power company defaulted on a debt-restructuring deal in July. That's a shame. This was bound to happen eventually.
100 MentalLittlePerson Hopefully they replace with an industry leading grid.
758 Haddontoo What is really fucked up about this is Puerto Rico is part of the US. We essentially have a mini-state without power, for up to 6 months! Poor Puerto Rico.
236 ohitsmewill Reading some of these comments really breaks my heart. My entire family is there and I have not had any type of contact since Maria started hitting the island.... It is shameful that people will immediately say negative things instead of focusing on the real issue. There are reported deaths already and there are a lot of people who need access to medical supplies... These people are just waiting and waiting and who knows what will happen.
57 biggoof we had a network outage once in PR, and I wanted to get service to the building. They told me the tech went home already and won't be back for 3 days. So, if that's how they do things, then this might be longer.
11 zeta_cartel_CFO Puerto Rico is already almost bankrupt. Now this. It's economy isn't going to recover anytime soon.
67 311polo I hope the United States does all it can to help PR recover. They are still one of our territories, even if not a state. It is a responsibility that our Government and our people have. How disappointing it would be to abandon it. On another note, I do support statehood for PR. It would certainly help them get the aid they need and economic development they need.
