Power Failure..again

Was going out for lunch with sis and friend today at about 12.30pm when i noticed the radio is giving intermitent static sound. Upon exiting Damansara Perdana and reaching Uptown, it was total static in the radio.

It was only when i picked my sis up later at Kelana Jaya that i knew there is a widespread power failure.

Was estatic, this meant today can go back early (ie can go Putrajaya earlier for my 45km ride).

Boss confirmed with me via SMS that half the country is experiencing blackout. (yay!!!)

At about 1.45pm, called back to the office and electricity has resumed at office area. (damn it!) and part of KL.

This is an excerpt from Bernama:

Power Failure In Klang Valley, Southern States

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 13 (Bernama) -- Several parts of the Klang Valley, including Putrajaya, were affected by a power failure which occurred at about 12.30 pm, eyewitnesses said.

They said that areas like Damansara, Bangsar, Hulu Klang, Petaling Jaya and Shah Alam were also hit by the blackout.

Tenaga Nasional Bhd has yet to issue a statement.

Meanwhile, city and Selangor police operations rooms reported several locations in the Federal Territory and the state were experiencing power outage, causing traffic lights at intersections to stop functioning.

Tenaga Nasional staffers contacted by Bernama said the blackout affected Melaka, Negeri Sembilan, Johor and key installations such as the KL International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang.
