I guess all places out East have not had power restored? Do they have an ETA for this yet?

WAPA is supposed to be working on a comprehensive plan for the entire territory. I don't think it's published yet. I suspect East STX restoration will be later due to distance and lower density. They've published the 90% by Christmas goal.

I've seen crews out, but I've not seen a single new pole yet (I'm pretty far from Wapa's generators out west though, so I assume they are starting from the source and working out).

90% by Christmas hopefully isn't a super optimistic number.

There was a [URL="http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/abinazir/2011/06/15/what-are-chances-you-would-be-born/"]1: 400,000,000,000,000[/URL] chance of you being born: what have you done with your miraculous life today?

Beginning on Friday morning at 7 a.m. and continuing for several days, WAPA crews and its contractors will be positioning a shipment of approximately 1,300 utility poles at strategic locations across St. Thomas. A second shipment of another 2,500 poles and additional equipment is expected in the territory within two weeks.

An additional fourteen linemen will arrive on island by Friday from the Western Area Power Administration. The mutual aid linemen will join eight linemen who have been on island since last weekend. Equipment for these linemen is expected on island this weekend.

Work continued on St. Croix Thursday to restore service to additional portions of downtown Christiansted and Frederiksted. It is anticipated that service will be restored to customers on Church and Company Streets in Christiansted by the weekend. Additional poles were planted on the path of Feeder 8B toward Frederiksted town.

On St. Thomas, restoration crews continued work on a portion of Feeder 6B as well as Feeder 6A. Crews planted and dressed additional poles along the feeder route up to UVI.

1,300 UTILITY POLES ARRIVE IN ST. THOMAS AS POWER RESTORATION RAMPS UP; MORE UPDATES ANNOUNCED
