Puerto Rico Governor Sets 9-Hour Curfew on Halloween Festivities

SAN JUAN Puerto Rican Gov. Ricardo Rossello set a nine-hour curfew on Halloween night this Tuesday as a safety measure for citizens due to the lack of electricity on the island following the devastation of Hurricane Maria.

According to a tweet by the chief executive, the curfew will be enforced between 8:00 pm Tuesday and 5:00 am Wednesday.

Rossello had already set curfews several times during the hurricane emergency.

The first was decreed Sept. 20 upon the arrival of Hurricane Maria and lasted 12 hours, from 6:00 pm to 6:00 am the next day.

The governor then extended that curfew to Sept. 24, though its nightly duration was later modified to begin later in the afternoon and end earlier in the morning the following day.

The measure was called off by the governor, however, last Oct. 18, to allow Puerto Ricans to enjoy the Baseball World Series, in which several ballplayers from the island are playing. Stores have also benefited by being able to stay open until late at night.

For that reason, the new curfew set for this Tuesday has been criticized by many because comes on the date of the sixth game of the World Series between the Houston Astros and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
