Power was out in many areas of the Larnaca district on Wednesday, according to EAC spokeswoman Christina Papadopoulou-Theofanidou.
She said EAC technicians were working to fix the problem and that the power would be restored as soon as possible.
According to Theofanidou the power outage was caused by damage to a sub-terrain cable. “We are trying to divert power from other areas so as to restore power in homes while our technicians work on fixing the problem. Work done on sub-terrain cables usually takes time since there’s no way to know what the technicians will find down there,” she said.
