FAA Update, via Dave

VIA the FAA
Aeropuerto Internacional Luis Muñoz Marín - Puerto Rico (San Juan)
Today, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Authorized 12 commercial flights per day, international flights are not yet authorized.
We continue to recommend not to come to the airport if it does not have a flight confirmation from the airline.
From the FAA update as well
From the article linked in the message above..."The airport handled nearly 100 total arrivals and departures yesterday, including the military and relief operations." So, a dozen "commercial" flights a day, plus nearly 90 "non-commercial" flights for relief operations.
Also from the article ...
Technicians are making their way to a second long-range radar site today at Pico del Este, which is located inside a National Park in Puerto Rico, on the top of a mountain. The last two miles to the site through the rain forest are impassable, so the technicians are using chain saws to clear a path for themselves and the replacement equipment.
FAA technicians are working around the clock to restore services, but because of the extent of the damage and challenges of the terrain where equipment is located, it's difficult to determine a timeline for the full restoration of service.
The FAA continues to work closely with its federal and local partners to rebuild the aviation system in the islands and help the area recover from two devastating storms.
