Students, teachers rejoice when power returns to school in Puerto Rico

A Lakeland family opened their home to a 17-year-old Puerto Rican student who lost nearly everything in Hurricane Maria A Lakeland family opened their home to a 17-year-old Puerto Rican student who lost nearly everything in Hurricane Maria

The Academic Bautista de Puerto Nuevo in San Juan posted a short video on its Facebook page that showed students jumping for joy and running around the halls while teachers rang bells.

Even with an all-out effort to restore electricity, it could still be several more months before everyone has their power restored, in what was considered the worst blackout in United States history.

When Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico on September 20, the storm took out power to most of the country's homes, businesses, hospitals and schools.

Electricity was restored 112 days after losing power, according to the school. Indisputable joy from all of us who are part of the ABPN. "We thank all of the parents, students and staff who have stayed and continued to support us throughout this situation".

The appreciation for simply having power shined brightly in a now viral video from a school in Puerto Rico. The island's 3.4 million residents struggled with lack of food, clean drinking water and fuel shortages for weeks after the hurricane hit. "The magnitude of the damage is something we haven't seen before".
