Caracas restores electrical service, remaining at least six states without power

Electricity is once again Tuesday morning in Venezuela's capital, although at least six states remained powerless after a month.

In the morning of this Tuesday, users reported that another event happened that Caracas left unconnected. The city is 80% engaged.

The blackout was the fourth that this year was suffering from the OPEC nation, that it ran several months out of March, causing errors in water pump, besides communication.

In a statement against Tuesday morning, state-owned National Electric Corporation (Corpoelec) said that sectors of the states of Nueva Esparta, Bolívar, Táchira, Lara, Anzoátegui took over and "added to the system recovery process, the states of Merida , Trujillo, Barinas, Aragua, and the 100% restoration in Caracas ”.

However, the central states of Carabobo and Aragua, near Caracas, were still without power, such as Lara, where & # 39; t Corpoelec reported the repayment of & # 39; e service, according to witnesses from Reuters.

The blackout occurred on Monday at 4.45 am local time and affected most of Venezuela's 23 states, including its capital Caracas, according to evidence from Reuters and reports on social media.

The president of President Nicolás Maduro has lifted the working and educational day on Tuesday, although most of the schools are already in & # 39; a traditional recess in the middle.

“Attention !! To assist in the reconnection process being carried out from the national electricity service, regular work and educational activities on Tuesday, July 23, are canceled, "wrote Twitter information minister Jorge Rodríguez.

He added that "except as urgently needed, we advise staying at home."

The government entrusted the light interruptions to another "electromagnetic attack" by its political opponents. However, industry experts say that the cuts are due to the lack of investment and maintenance of infrastructure.
