AFP: Caracas, other parts of Venezuela hit by power cut23 July 2019 | 02:53 | FOCUS News Agency
The lights went out in most of Caracas at 4:41 pm (2041 GMT) while people in other parts of the country took to social media to report the power had gone out there too.
The state-owned power company CORPOELEC only reported a breakdown affecting sectors of Caracas.
The capital was hit by huge traffic jams due to the traffic lights losing power while the sidewalks were full of pedestrians walking home as the metro had stopped running.
An even bigger power outage in March affected all 23 states in Venezuela and lasted a week, paralyzing basic services such as the water supply and forcing the working day and school classes to be suspended.
