I live in a boonie town in P.R. we werent hit by irma at all but since 11am Wednesday ,power has been out . Water went out shortly after phones went down the next day. Everything has been ok so far but here we are day 5 and people are starting to get antsy and its amazing how things are starting to turn.
In this small town we probably have 10-15 people with generators and about maybe im guessing 40 with water tanks . Its taken to day 5 when now people are complaining about those with the generators. How inconsiderate we are ,how noisy the generators are waah. I will gladly charge up your phone no prob thats nothing.. anything else ,I need to see a gallon and an extension cord . the town ran out of gas , the town over has gas but the closest functioning ath is 2 towns away so yea its sucks all around . People are looking at your tank (mines at half , so shit it needs to rain.) 5 days is what Im learning where peoples tipping point is . and we live in the country we dont have the government or church relief nothing .There are no photo ops to be had here.
Water and power going out here is a normal occurrence usually lasts a day. Water might be gone for a day or 2 longest was 4 days .thats what we are used to so why if you know where you live did you not prepare? So hopefully utilities are back tomorrow because 911 cant find us. Seriously I made that mistake when we first moved here and the 911 operator actually kept telling me the town I said I was in doesnt exist. I told her the connecting town and thank god they called through to the fire station and they got to me .
So lets see how this goes Ill update if anything happens .
Edit* Electric is back !!! No water yet but eh whatever shouldnt be that much longer. Sorry about dropping off last night generator died and I had about 2 gallons left until I went out to get more. Which was this morning. electric came back in the afternoon.If I dont see at least 10 more generators pop up next time the power goes out I will know for sure people are just stupid and theres no helping them.
