Electric blackouts on the increase in Havana
HAVANA, Cuba - November 27 (Juan Carlos Linares Balmaseda /
www.cubanet.org) - Electric blackouts have become more frequent in
Havana during the last week, according to an official of the Electric
Power company in the city.
The official said the cutbacks were due to problems in the power lines.
Most areas of the city have been involved, but the municipalities of
Cerro, 10 de Octubre, and Plaza have been the worst.
The most common service interruptions are usually due to the changing of
poles, transformers and crossovers, she said, adding that linesmen
cannot keep up.
