SIMFEROPOL, March 24, /ITAR-TASS/. An electricity outage affected several districts in Simferopol, the capital of Crimea Sunday night, officials at the Krymenergo power utility told Itar-Tass.
“We don’t have full information at the moment because data continues coming in but outages have occurred not only in Simferopol but also in other parts of Crimea,” Krymenergo spokeswoman Viktoria Lapshina said, adding that the causes of the outage were not clear at the moment.
Electricity supplies were normal in the downtown part of Simferopol, an Itar-Tass correspondent said in an eyewitness account, but a number of other districts - the Old City, Moskalets, and Kiyevsky - were blacked out practically in full, with the only light coming from headlights of cars moving along the streets. Also, one could see candlelight in the windows of residential apartments here and there.
