A massive power outage occurred again in various parts of the Venezuelan capital of Caracas and nearby localities.
The blackout was reported mainly by the inhabitants of East Caracas, namely the districts of Altamira, La Urbina, El Cafetal, El Rosal, Los Palos Grandes, and others.
In the municipality of Chacao, where a number of foreign embassies and large hotels are located, power outages were registered on Sunday evening.
The causes of the latest blackout are still unknown. However, a number of media outlets cite an explosion, which allegedly occurred at an electrical substation in the industrial area of Cloris east of Caracas, as a possible cause.
On March 7, a massive power outage swept through the majority of Venezuelan states, leaving the nation, over 30 million people, without direct access to basic amenities, including water and medical care at hospitals.
National electricity supplier Corpoelec insisted that the blackout was the result of sabotage at the major Guri hydroelectric power plant in the country’s east.
Maduro has pinned the blame for the crisis on the USA, while Washington has denied having a role in the blackout.
