The north, center and Obor areas in Bucharest might remain without electricity after a high voltage cable has been affected during excavations on Soseaua Fundeni, on Wednesday morning. An administrative investigation has been started by mayor Sorin Oprescu, according to Mediafax.
Enel Distributie Muntenia officials, the electricity provider for the capital city, have declared that the incident is not connected with the company. Repair works for the caused damage will be over by the end of the week. Until then, however, if the power network is overloaded, blackouts may occur, due to the current lack of a backup power station.
The electricity company thus advises users to be energy efficient and not to oversolicit the power network.
