Major power outage reported across Puerto Rico

A major power outage has been reported across most of Puerto Rico.
A spokesman for the state-owned Electric Energy Authority says dozens of municipalities are without power. Gerardo Quinones said Friday that a "big problem" has been identified at the main power station in the capital of San Juan but that authorities still do not know what exactly happened.
A union that represents electric workers says 75 percent of the island is without power, including those who live in the nearby island of Vieques. About 3.7 million people live in Puerto Rico.
The outage comes amid heavy thunderstorms and has snarled traffic and caused accidents across the U.S. territory.
