Puerto Rico Disaster Chief Resigns - Throwing Island Recovery Into Further Turmoil

Puerto Rico Disaster Chief Resigns - Throwing Island Recovery Into Further Turmoil”

The outage occurred on a transmission line repaired by Whitefish Energy, a USA company that received a $300 million contract, which was later canceled, to restore power on the island after the hurricane.

The satellite TV service provider also said it expects certain expenses to re-activate customers.

Revenue fell to $3.58 billion from $3.77 billion. That angered many people because Gómez heads the island's Emergency and Disaster Management Agency, known as AEMEAD - and Puerto Rico was demolished by Hurricane Maria less than two months ago.

Maria devastated Puerto Rico when it slammed the island in September. Public Security Secretary Hector Pesquera will take over for Gómez.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency will provide passenger flights to relocate about 3,000 Puerto Ricans still sleeping in emergency shelters to temporary housing on the USA mainland. About 40 percent still have no running water.

Rosselló on Friday extended "our gratitude to Abner Gomez for his availability and work over the past months at the helm of these important agencies", he said in a statement.

"We have maximum interest in resolving this and energizing the metropolitan area again", Justo González, director of generation for the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, said in a Facebook Live video.
