Libya’s east went into total blackout
Power outages continue to trouble the daily lives of Libyans across the country amid the current rising temperatures that hit on Sunday 45 in some cities.
According to the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) the eastern region went into a total blackout on Sunday after a technical fault in Tamimi power plant leading to a blackout in Tobruk and Green Mountain cities.
GECOL added that the fault led also to a blackout in the whole eastern region, adding that engineers are trying to restore power and fix the malfunctions.
“All citizens in Libya should help GECOL by cutting off their use of power these days so that we can stabilise the general electricity network in the country.” GECOL said on its Facebook page.
On Friday, western Libyan went into a total black out from Ras Ajdair to Sirte in central Libya amid high temperatures and a heatwave.
