Sin Luz: Life Without Power


The Washington Post

Sin Luz: Life without Power is an immersive video interactive produced by The Washington Post. It tells the story of Puerto Rico’s apagón, or “super blackout,” the longest and largest major power outage in modern U.S. history. Without electricity, there is no reliable source of clean water. School is out, indefinitely. Health care is fraught. Small businesses are faltering. The tasks of daily life are both exhausting and dangerous. There is nothing to do but wait, and no one can say when the lights will come back on.
