CHRISTIANSTED — The Cable News Network (CNN) wrote a story about St. Croix “75 days after Maria” on Sunday saying that at least 60 percent of the island still does not have electricity following the hurricane that struck Sept. 19-20.
“Power remains out for more than 60% of the territory. On St. Croix, the largest of the islands, only about a fourth of residents — known as Crucians — have electricity,” CNN reported. “Many homes still have no roofs. Cell networks are spotty.”
CNN says for many residents “the new normal” means brewing coffee on the stove with propane gas because coffee makers won’t work without electricity, that people go to be at night to the rumble of diesel generators — and that nothing before the storm or after the storm is the same.
