On Wednesday, the entire Island of Puerto Rico lost power. But before Wednesday's outage, after nearly eight months post-Hurricane Maria, 11 percent of the island was still living in darkness — including this apartment building in Coamo.`

Lights are out in Puerto Rico again. But for some, the power’s been out since Hurricane Maria.

Puerto Rico’s power company said it had restored power to over 1.1 million homes and businesses by Thursday morning after an islandwide blackout. But prior to the blackout, more than 44,000 Puerto Ricans were without electricity — nearly eight months after Hurricane Maria.
