In isolated Puerto Rican town, a need for water, power — and news

ARECIBO, Puerto Rico — People in this ravaged city get their drinking water from a hole poked into a fire hose attached to a street hydrant. 

No one has power and they haven't heard from the outside world in four days, when Hurricane Maria barreled through here early Wednesday, smashing homes and sending walls of water through town. 

Now residents here face a new peril: the Guajataca Dam, which was threatening to breach and could send more floods their way.
