Barrio Almirante Sur, Sector murciélago & La Pica in Vega Baja are still without power and have been without power since Irma. It is 8 months now.

Ironically, we are all asking the same question and here is the rest of their tweeted 5 part answer:

The Unified Command Group (comprised of , USACE, PREPA/       and the restoration coordinator) continues to do all the deliberate planning for a proper transition and to ensure that there are no gaps. (2/5)

This includes establishing a transitional Incident Management Team from industry and train PREPA’s IMT to assume command and to lead the effort to complete a plan for the final less than 2% of customers still needing to be energized. (3/5)

The Unified Command Group is continually evaluating the remaining work in order to achieve the goals of restoring electricity until the mission is complete. (4/5)

USACE will maintain a contingent of personnel in the island for a few weeks following May 18 as we transfer logistic operations back to FEMA and PREPA and to oversee the demobilization of contractors supporting the mission. (5/5)

What does this actually mean? Probably, we are not going to do very much, but we will be happy to put out another 5 part tweet!

¿Qué significa esto realmente? Probablemente, no vamos a hacer mucho, ¡pero estaremos encantados de publicar otro tweet de 5 partes!
