Thousands of Puerto Ricans lost power Thursday after a tree fell across a power line.

The local power authority said nearly 840,000 people had been affected, including residents of the capital city San Juan. 

Keep in mind, Puerto Rico is still struggling to recover after Hurricane Maria hammered the island. Nearly 900 temporary generators are still in use. More than 50,000 residents are still without power due to the storm.
