This is intensified by the lack of traffic lights and the fallen trees and electric power lines that cover the streets.

Campa also told reported during a conference call Monday that 65 percent of grocery stores had reopened as well as 69 percent of gas stations.

"There's a time for lighthearted and there's a a time for not", she said, "and being on an island that's devastated and people are dying, I don't think funny is really the direction you want to go".

A mere 6.9% of the island has electricity, according to the government of Puerto Rico.
