An explosion and fire at an electric substation,
. . . threw much of northern Puerto Rico into darkness late Sunday,
. . . in a setback for the U.S. territory's efforts to fully restore power, more than
. . . months after Hurricane Maria started,
. . . the longest blackout in U.S. history.

The blackout comes as more than
. . . 400,000 power customers remain in the dark, more than
. . . 5 months after Hurricane Maria.

The storm destroyed 2/3 of the island's power distribution system, and
. . . caused up to an estimated
. . . $94 billion in damage.
