Nearly 400 thousand AEE clients remain without light | government


About 400,000 people continue without the service of the Electric Power Authority (PREPA), confirmed the Secretary of the Department of State, Elmer Román in the last update of the government for the emergency caused by the storm Isaías.

It is the same number of people without light since this morning when the rains and the gusts of the atmospheric phenomenon began to be felt.

There were also no changes in the number of subscribers of the Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (AAA) without drinking water service.

Román indicated that there are 150,000 clients of the corporation whose service has been affected by inclement weather.

Early it had been said that 86% of AAA subscribers without service was as a result of a lack of electricity.

Likewise, Román reported that the Department of Housing had 62 refugees at the state level, most of whom were in Guayanilla and Añasco. Another 10 people are also housed in a municipal shelter located in the El Gandúl community in Santurce.

It also announced that 14% of the cell towers were out of service and 23 hospital institutions operated with an electric generator.

It also emerged that 45 hospitals had electricity and that among them was the Río Piedras Medical Center.

So far, the central, south and southwest areas are the most affected by the atmospheric system.
