Power outages make the capital kind of bleak


The capital, Tripoli, was in dark and dim shape yesterday as electricity outages lasted for more than 10 hours Abd in some areas for 16 hours.

The streets were completely deserted from both light and people on Wednesday night due to the blackouts that took place yesterday.

On Thursday early morning, the case was no better, some areas had the power back and some many others had it not.

Libya is seeing deficiency in power generation every summer since 2013 due to lack of financial, fuel supplies and lack of security in the power plants’ areas.

Wednesday, the General Company for Electricity issued a statement apologizing from citizens for the dim atmosphere the outages caused saying the reason behind the long-hours blackout goes back to the bad weather and sand storms.
