A top U.S. Army engineer says he’s not happy
that many Puerto Ricans still don’t have power five months after Hurricane Maria put the
island in the dark. According to ABC, Lt. Gen. Todd Semonite said
during an interview Wednesday: As of Wednesday, about 84 percent of residents
on the island had power. In October, Gov. Ricardo Rosselló had pledged
to restore power to 95 percent of the island by late last year. But even he said that estimate was “aggressive.” ABC reports the Army Corps of Engineers now
hopes to reach that goal by the end of March.
