Wednesday, June 28, 2017

An explosion in an electrical substation in Penonome shut down Panama’s metro line, caused traffic chaos, trapped people in elevators and left homes and businesses without power for three and a half hours, on Tuesday.

The outage began at noon and the state power company Etesa reported that 100 percent of the electrical load in the country had been restored at 3:30 p.m. after affecting several provinces.
