Puerto Rico Infrastructure Ruined After Hurricane
Material Handling & Logistics
SEPTEMBER 22, 2017
Estimates of damage in Puerto Rico could hit $30 billion, according to Chuck Watson, a disaster modeler at Enki Research, as reported by the Washington Post. It may take months to turn the power back on. After Maria hit the island on Sept. 20, with winds up to 155 miles per hour, electricity was knocked out across the island. The island’s main electricity provider, government-owned Electric Power Authority, is racing to restore the island’s grid.
