An accident? A sabotage?

A “special operation?

All of the above? None of the above?

Power station blast plunges Puerto Rico into darkness – AFP

The state electric power authority (AEE) said the blast was caused by a broken-down switch in Rio Piedras, resulting in a blackout in central San Juan and Palo Seco in the north…

The blackout comes as nearly 500,000 of AEE’s 1.6 million customers remain without power since Hurricanes Irma and Maria struck the US territory in September 2017.

AEE engineer Jorge Bracero warned on Twitter that the outage was “serious,” and advised those affected that power would not be restored until Monday.

NPR’s Adrian Florido, reporting from San Juan, says the blackout affects the heavily populated northern part of the island after the explosion that occurred at about 9 p.m. Sunday… 

PREPA says it does not yet know what caused the explosion,

but that it is optimistic that the substation could be repaired and that power could be restored within a day. 

As we reported in January, Puerto Rico’s Gov. Ricardo Rosselló has announced a plan to privatize PREPA, which has been under fire for its failure to fully restore power to the island after the devastation of Maria, Puerto Rico’s worst natural disaster in nearly a century.

That came after Rosselló asked the Justice Department to investigate the utility“after federal agents said they found large quantities of critical rebuilding materials stored in a warehouse owned by the public company.”

Island still recovering from summer hurricanes

An explosion and fire in a power facility in Puerto Rico Sunday night knocked out power to a densely populated corridor of the island, which is still getting back on its feet from last summer’s devastating hurricanes.
