After Maria: Puerto Rico & Thanksgiving
The power is still out for more than half of those in Puerto Rico. Progress since Hurricane Maria hit has been fitful, this month, the island hit a goal of restoring 50 percent of its generating capacity, according to Gov. Ricardo Roselló.
But a major transmission line then failed, and reduced power generation on the island to just 22%. This Thanksgiving Puerto Rico will have to make do with around 40% of its generating capacity.
This holiday is likely to be no holiday for the millions still recovering from the storm.
