A massive blackout that affected 5 states throughout southeast Mexico and the Yucatan Peninsula occurred this past Tuesday, leaving the entire island of Cozumel without power for several hours.

Shortly after 11 am on the 23rd, millions of people in Tabasco, Campeche, Vera Cruz, Yucatan and Quintana Roo, were affected.  Obviously, communication was hampered, businesses were affected, and even public transportation compromised since traffic signals were down.

According to reports from the Federal Electricity Commission (Comision Federal de Electricidad)   a malfunction on the Grijalva Hydrological complex resulted in the “Mega-Blackout” as it is now being called.

Un apagón masivo que afectó a 5 estados del sureste de México y la Península de Yucatán ocurrió el pasado martes, dejando a la Isla sin energía eléctrica durante varias horas.

 

Poco después de las 11 a.m. del día 23, millones de personas se vieron afectadas en Tabasco, Campeche, Veracruz, Yucatán y Quintana Roo. Obviamente, las comunicaciones se interrumpieron, los comercios se vieron afectado e incluso el transporte público se vio afectado ya que las señales de transito no funcionaban.

 

Según información de la Comisión Federal de Electricidad, un fallo en la hidrológica Grijalva resulto en el “mega apagón”, como ahora se le conoce.
