Here's our latest on Cabo Rojo:
A final assessment of Cabo Rojo has been conducted 26 Nov 2017, an interval of 28 days since initial assessment.
Roads, communications and medical have been restored to nearly normal operations. Running water, schools, power and food supply have some functionality. Power is being restored but remains the biggest challenge for Cabo Rojo. We give this an overall assessment as on plan . With a confidence assessment of medium based on the amount of data we were able to gather in the municipality. Specific details are:
Schools: 10 of 16 schools are open (initial assessment, five were open, so this is a significant change).
FCC cell sites: 10 of 51 sites are still out (19.6%). This is an improvement of 27 sites since initial assessment.
Power: Grid power is slowly being restored during November. This is the biggest focus of the town. At least 15 sites have grid power, including the AAA well pozo Carr #103. This is an improvement since the initial assessment when only 1 site in Cabo Rojo had been energised. However, there are frequent outages. Also, many residents are replying to FaceBook announcements by the Mayor’s office to say that there is no power in their areas.
Water: There was an interruption to water supply then a boiling advisory on 4 Nov due to a breakdown of the water plant. Some residents are still reporting no water in their communities, 25-26 Nov.
