While Puerto Rico’s tourism agency claims that the island is open for travel, there are still many areas without running water or electricity. According to NBC News, just 63 percent of the nation has electricity, and there are still 8 percent without running water.
NBC News reported there has been nearly a 5 percent decline in power distribution over the last week.
