More On The Power Outage

Explosion causes outage. Power was restored in Yona when I got home last night. Seems a breaker blew up in Mongmong causing the entire island-wide grid to go down. Kudos to GPA for restoring power quickly. It’s a far cry from the days of rolling blackouts because the island didn’t have enough generating capacity. Power outages have become uncommon – not rare, but uncommon. Still a great deal better than the daily occurrence they used to be.
