  • 3.4 million in Puerto Rico could be without power for 4-6 months, mayor warns

    Hurricane Maria was battering the Dominican Republic on Thursday as the long-term devastation in Puerto Rico was just coming into focus.

  • Hurricane Maria’s effect on US not ruled out, forecasters say

    As Hurricane Maria lashed the Dominican Republic after a destructive rampage in Puerto Rico and Dominica, the US mainland should not breathe a sigh of relief. At least not just yet. Maria is a Category 3 hurricane packing winds of 115 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center. While its current model does not show a direct hit on the East Coast, forecasters say, it cannot be ruled out this far in advance. The hurricane is moving away from Puerto Rico and […]

    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Puerto Rico’s energy grid took such a severe blow from deadly Hurricane Maria that restoring power to everyone may take months, Gov. Ricardo Rosselló told CNN on Wednesday night. The entire system is down, the governor said. No one on the island has power from utilities.
