Power outage affects 16,000
Thousands of people across the island lost power after two generators at electricity firm Belco shut down yesterday.
The outage happened at about 8.30am and caused 24 circuits to go down, which affected 16,000 customers.
A spokeswoman for the firm said power was restored to all customers just after 9.30am. Belco’s online outage map showed several areas across Bermuda had lost power, — although St George’s and St David’s appeared unaffected.
