Why debate. This website is updated daily.

Thanks! What are the AAA and AAE stats? What do they represent? Are these just for SJU or the whole island?

Have friends with family there. What I am hearing is that the statistics are skewed. That is, yes, 90% of the islands power may be restored, but that does NOT mean that 90% of the islands residents have power.

Priority is being given to things like government offices, first responders, hospitals, and the like. Then next priority is gas stations, grocery stores, other infrastructure stuff. Basically, the very last priority is power into individual homes.

This makes sense, of course. The people there understand the priorities. Visitors are probably not going to have any serious problems. Still, it is worthwhile remembering that there are still a WHOLE LOT of people on the island that are making due without any power in their homes.

Another major issue is if a property is ABLE to accept power, i.e. is the service entrance undamaged or repaired, has the property been inspected and given authorization to reconnect power lines, etc.

The AAA Authority for the water and sewer aqueducts
The AEE Authority for the electric.
It's for the whole island

OK, so according to that website, only 68% of power is on, through today. So the local reports seem to be somewhat optimistic?

Usually the local reports are days old before they're published.
