Much of northern Puerto Rico was plunged into darkness late Sunday night after an explosion started a fire at a key electric substation. Island authorities said several municipalities lost power, including areas of capital San Juan, with the island's electric power authority tweeting that around 400 megawatts of power generation were lost. The blackout compounds the destruction of Hurricane Maria, which took out two-thirds of the island’s power system and 400,000 people are still without power five months after the storm, the AP reported. Sun Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz tweeted that there were no injuries from the explosion and that some parts of the capital were beginning to regain power.
