KON TUM (VNS)— More than 5,000 families in four districts in the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum suffered from a power failure caused by lightning strikes early this week, local authorities said.
The blackout happened after a tree struck by lightning felt onto a nearby power line. The provincial electricity authority has resupplied power in the districts of Kon Plong and Kon Ray, but power loss in Dak To and Tu Mo Rong districts is still under way.
Local authorities are planning to replace out-of-date power equipment. — VNS
