Puerto Rico Faces Day 2 Of "Apocalypse" Power Outage

Duration: 00:56s - Published: < > Embed
News video: Puerto Rico Faces Day 2 Of following a fire at a power plant that set off a broader outage across the island's aging utility grid that left most of the island's 3.5 million people without service, much of Puerto Rico was still without electricity Thursday. The vast majority of Puerto Ricans don't have generators. Wednesday's blackout forced them to spend the night in darkness and without air conditioning in the tropical heat. They awoke to find most businesses and public offices closed.
