Indians donate $37000 for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico

Relive the incredible reaction from the stands to Francisco Lindor's home run in Puerto Rico

According to ABC News, it is expected to take between 24 and 36 hours for power to be restored.

Puerto Rico's power authority said the US territory is in the midst of an island-wide power outage.

"We have backup generators", Major League Baseball said.

Never mind the island-wide power outage in Puerto Rico, the ballgame between the Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins will go on as planned Wednesday night, officials said.

Officials said restoring power to hospitals, airports, banking centers and water pumping systems was their priority.

Cruz tweeted plans for tonight, noting that tower lights will be brought in to the parking lot and security will be increased at the stadium. He said the union is investigating why a breaker at a main power station in the island's southern region did not function when the outage occurred. One of the lines was affected by a tree that fell during unrelated power restoration efforts elsewhere on the island. With 40,000 power customers still without normal electric service, the worry is that Puerto Rico's power grid won't be fully repaired by the time the Atlantic hurricane season begins on June 1.
