Very little can be consealed anymore, most especially conspiracies and secrets involving govt etc.. If this was sabotage I would expect it to be public knowledge by now. I expect it was equipment failure or a combination of equipment and the ever variable human factor we call error. Every year fires like this occur in similar facilities across the USA.

If I were able, I would, without hesitation, tell you were to go. Too bad, I am prevented from doing so.

Everything you have been doing here is TRYING TO DEMEAN Puerto Ricans. But, you know what, I hold a PHD, and speak three languages, you can try all you want. And in that very-small and beautiful ISLAND, there many, many more just like me.

"Never let a crisis go to waste"


we already knew this.....when she paid 4 photographers $12,000 to follow her around to take pictures and she goes in the flood black waters when she has professionals for that and that's not her job, most knew she was doing this for political and grandstanding and photo-ops but many fell for the scam.

I would say this for any politician that does this......Many public servants in Puerto Rico and private citizens did wonderful things but they didn't pay $12,000 to photographers to take pictures and put it on twitter and in public for political gain and photo ops.

What is wrong with this picture? .......she knew those houses were empty and it was safe to walk on those muddy waters for her photo-ops ......you don't just walk in those waters and in people's houses if you don't know if it's safe. You have power lines loose and all kinds of hazards that any people who are not professionals wouldn't do that......unless the professionals told her that area is safe to be swimming in and walking like it was like nothing.....you tell me.

Enclosed is a similar story from the local press in PR (quoted below from El Nuevo Dia). Apparently the cause was a power line damaged during excavation work.

Un apagón afectó hoy a toda la isla tras reportarse una avería en la línea 50700 del sistema de la Autoridad de Energía Eléctrica (AEE). Tras el incidente, el subdirector de las AEE, Justo González, informó que la avería fue causada mientras una compañía privada estaba removiendo una torre colapsada y, con una excavadora, impactó la línea.

Según González, la compañía responsable del apagón fue Dgrimm, empresa que está subcontratada por Cobra Energy. Esta compañía es la misma que provocó también la semana pasada una avería que afectó al centro y norte de la isla.

Cobra Energy es una de las empresas norteamericanas que tiene presencia en la isla tras el paso del huracán María para restablecer el sistema energético.

"Esto es inaceptable", dijo el subdirector de la agencia.

González afirmó en una conferencia de prensa que Cobra Energy "va a desmovilizar en este preciso momento" a la empresa.

La línea afectada discurre desde la Central Aguirre, en Salinas, hasta la planta AES en Guayama.

Según el funcionario, el tiempo estimado de recuperación es de 24 a 36 horas.
