300,000 people are still without power in Puerto Rico.
As of this week, many Puerto Ricans have been without power for six months. They’ve been waiting not since Hurricane Maria, but since Hurricane Irma, which struck two weeks earlier.
In Puerto Rico, roughly 150,000 homes and businesses are still waiting for electricity. That’s 11 percent of the island’s customers. Many have been waiting since before Hurricane Maria, when Hurricane Irma grazed the island six months ago this week. NPR’s Adrian Florido reports.
