Part of Caracas is without electricity due to failure in the circuit



Part of Caracas remained without light due to a fault in a circuit in the southeastern part of the Venezuelan capital, informed the state electricity company Corpoelec.

"There is a breakdown in Cafetal circuit A7, Baruta municipality, affecting the sectors: El Cafetal, La Guairita, Lomas de Maturin, Macaracuay, Baruta (and) Santa Clara - Santa Elena," Corpoelec said on his Twitter account.

The state-owned company added that it works to "re-establish the service progressively", while asking for the "understanding" of the users.

There were also disturbances in the service in areas of the west and center of the capital, although there is no information about the origin of the electric cut in these places.

Electric power cuts are frequent in Venezuela, a country that is going through a severe economic crisis with widespread shortages, hyperinflation and frequent failures in the provision of public services.

The government of Nicolás Maduro usually blames light failures on alleged sabotage and an "electric war", but opponents and experts in the field point to disinvestment as the main cause.
