Puerto Rico: Power restored to 55% of customers, governor’s office says

San Juan, Puerto Rico( CNN) Exactly how bad was Puerto Rico’s power system damaged by Hurricane Maria? Everybody knows a lot of people were in the dark, but information provided by authorities has been confusing.

The picture became a little clearer Friday. The governor’s office informed the committee that “approximately 55% of the customers who are able to receive electric power have their service restored.” Customers were defined as “residential, commercial and industrial clients, ” not individual people.

Previously, the government talked about only percentage of power-generating capacity restored, a figure that does not reflect the number or percentage of Puerto Rico’s population that has power.
