How to use blackout in a sentence?

  1. Trevor Houser:

    As we started looking at the scale of the blackout and try to put that in historical context, it became clear this was a record-breaking event and worthy of some attention and focus just from an electric standpoint.

  2. Anna Kovalchuk:

    I’m more worried that most likely there will be no electricity on New Year’s Eve and the holiday will have to be spent in the dark. But I began to prepare myself for such a scenario in advance, stocked up on garlands, power banks, so the blackout would upset us, but not stop us.

  3. Nelly Moreno:

  4. Tomoaki Shishido:

    Since the strong retail sales data last Friday, the Fed has clearly started a communication campaign to urge markets to price in a hike in June, even though markets have not gone there yet, they set (Fed Chair Janet) Yellen's speech on June 6, just after the next payroll data and just before the blackout period will start before the next policy meeting. They wouldn't have to do this if they have no plan to raise rates in June.

  5. Monica Viego-Rodriguez:

This is really, really serious for us, we don't know what's going to happen with us in the future. We don't know if we're going to keep getting some aid some help – it's scary for us. Help from U.S. mainland power companies has been coming in waves for months. But Monica Viego-Rodriguez still hasn't seen a light come on anywhere in Monica Viego-Rodriguez neighborhood since the hurricanes hit last fall. Monica Viego-Rodriguez can only buy perishable foods for Monica Viego-Rodriguez family that they can eat the same day.There is nowhere to store food other than a cooler that she keeps filled with ice on her balcony. More than 470,000 homes were damaged or destroyed, causing an estimated $ 140 billion in damages. As Puerto Rico experiences the longest and most devastating blackout in American history, 1,000 utility trucks and 1,500 workers from 22 electric companies from all over the U.S. are arriving on the island this week to help the existing crews on the job restore power. As crews carve their way through the catastrophic damage, their progress is slow. But they met a major milestone this month when 1 million customers had their power restored, and utility crews say they won't stop until everyone is back on line. Help from U.S. mainland power companies has been coming in waves for months. But some Puerto Rico residents say they still haven't seen a light come on anywhere in their neighborhood since the hurricanes hit last fall.
