"Nearly Half Of Puerto Rico Customers Still Lack Power, Officials Say"

"Almost half of the electricity customers in Puerto Rico lack power, according to officials on the island, 100 days after Hurricane Maria hit the island.

Government officials on the island told The Associated Press on Friday that only 55 percent of Puerto Rico's 1.5 million electricity customers have power.

Before Friday, the only official figures from the Puerto Rican government concerned the amount of electric generating capacity that the island-owned Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) had running."
