Massive Blackout Hits Indonesian Capital

Post by absinthe beginner » Sun Aug 04, 2019 9:12 am

A huge power outage has hit the Indonesian capital Jakarta and surrounding cities, potentially affecting tens of millions of people.

The failure began at about midday local time (0500 GMT) and it could take hours for power to be restored.

Traffic lights switched off in some areas of Jakarta, worsening congestion in a city notorious for traffic.

Passengers on the city's newly opened metro system were forced to evacuate with commuter trains also hit.
