Crews working to restore Limassol power damage

Power has been diverted from elsewhere to give electricity to the two Limassol areas that experienced a power cut until damage is restored, the utility’s spokeswoman Christina Papadopoulou said on Tuesday.

The power cuts, one in Limassol city centre and the other on the eastern part of the town, were due to damage to an underground cable, she said.

“It was not due to overload,” Papadopoulou told the Cyprus Mail. She added that the damage in the city centre, spanning from Heroes square up to Makarios Avenue, occurred at around 1.10pm, and electricity was restored at 2.30pm.

The power cut in the eastern part of town, which affected beach hotels, Papadopoulou said, occurred at around the same time and electricity was restored at around 3pm.

“The electricity given to these two areas was diverted from elsewhere, while crews are still working to restore the damage,” she said.
