Strong winds caused many power outages

Wind-palmenWILLEMSTAD - The strong wind of this weekend has caused power outages across the island. Due to a failure in a substation at Tera Kora electricity went from the area of Grote Berg all the way to West Point.

Later the same happened in Steenenkoraal and Seru Fortuna, after power lines snapped by falling debris.

The utility company, Aqualectra deployed additional staff to remedy the problems. The weather reports indicate that the code pink remains in force. That means that even today it is still blowing hard.
