Power in San Juan
      #1752596 - 12/01/17 03:11 AM (96.54.50.89)

Anybody with first hand knowledge of how San Juan is now doing for power? OSJ? Condado? Santurce? Ocean Park? Are the major 'general'stores open( Marshall's,Costco,Walmart,Super-Max). Heard mixed info as to whether San Juan is getting back on its feet. Thanks.

San Juan has power with the exception of a few smaller streets which should be with power by this weekend.
The power has sometimes been shut off for a few hour while the tweek the different areas.
Only about 15% of the island is without power but that should be restored by the end of next week.
All the supermarkets and stores are in operations.
It's almost as though the hurricane never hit.

Really? That's certainly not what I am reading elsewhere. What is your source?

My source is my eyes, the restaurants and the stores I visit
The long gas lines disappeared a month ago.
Everything is functioning except in some of the mountainous areas.
There are no shortages of anything.
The US Army did a great job over a month ago by delivering generators and fuel on a 24/7 basis for the gas stations which ended the gas shortage in under a week and they had tanker trucks filling the generator fuel tanks at all the hospitals and clinics and some of the larger supermarkets

Thanks Carol.... Exactly my question. Need to hear from people with 'boots on the ground' or really solid contacts....I keep getting either no info ( tons available about BVI/ USVI) or conflicting info.

OK, what I hear has to do with Puerto Rico as a whole, more than San Juan in particular, but it seems that your estimate of power to the country as a whole is off..

The estimate on the power for the island according to FEMA last week was 20% of the island still had no power and according to the local news this week it went down to 15%.
One of the places that's without any electric is the island of Vieques.
