Some Lorraine Village Residents Feel They Are Being Put Through ‘Hell’ Because They Still Don’t Have Electricity Five Months After Maria

[ad name=”HTML-68″]



Good day Editor:
Some residents in Lorraine Village apartments in the grove place area on St. Croix are still without electricity.
The management needs to repair weather heads in order for power to be restored.
I feel like I’m in a ruthless dream that is putting me through hell.
It’s going on five months and these residents has been neglected.
Nobody is saying anything!!!
I am a young resident in this community and it’s so frustrating to wake up everyday to the same condition.
I desperately need your help to get this story as soon as possible in order to draw attention if even it is national attention.
People think all is well in this area. It’s not!
Some of my other neighbors have their electricity back way before Christmas.
What’s really taking so long?
No communication nothing.
Please assist. Greatly appreciated.
