Puerto Rico still has residents without power more than five months after Hurricane Maria, but Ameren Illinois is still doing its part to help the island recover. The electric company has multiple crews on the island working diligently to restore power to Puerto Ricans.
Brian Doran is an Electric Supervisor with Ameren Illinois. He is currently in Puerto Rico, and says restoring power on the island is a tougher job than back at home.
Doran and his crew are currently working to restore power in the Rio Grande area east of San Juan. He says as his crew travels with the power line to fix the issues, the residents are extremely gracious to the crew.
The workers Doran supervises are from all parts of Illinois, and they continue to work together to bring Puerto Ricans back on line.
