Entire Island Of Puerto Rico Without Power Due To Line Fault

The island of Puerto Rico just can't seem to catch a break.

Authorities say the entire island is without power after a blackout hit Wednesday morning.  

Just days ago, authorities claimed that 97 percent of customers had their power restored for the first time following Hurricane Maria.

CBS News is reporting that a fault was detected on a line and it is expected to take up to 36 hours to restore power.

Since Maria hit in September, more than 3.4 billion hours of electricity have been lost on the island -- making it the second-longest blackout in world history.
