Power outage country wide.
Started at 6:45 or so, flickered off and on a couple of times and then out again.
Notice was posted on BTL that BEL is searching for the a cause. Clearly that means we have cel phone service but since most desk phones use electricity you may find getting through to some folks a bit ifficult.

BEL Restores Power Supply following Countrywide Power Interruption

Belize Electricity Limited (BEL) restored power supply to the country this morning, following an unplanned power interruption at 6:41am, due to a damaged insulator on the transmission system, near the Petville Area in the Orange Walk District.

By 7:12 a.m. most of southern Belize had been restored using local generation sources. The North and West were restored between 7:38 a.m. and 7:52 a.m. while the Belize District, South and remaining areas were restored by 8:14 a.m.

On Wednesday, February 24, portions of San Pedro Town and a portion of the Belize District also experienced unplanned power interruptions ranging two to three hours, as a result of weather conditions. In San Pedro, the power interruption was due to downed guy wires and in the Belize District, several high voltage lines were downed. BEL crews were promptly dispatched to assess and conduct repairs. A branch was also removed from high voltage lines, near Mile 3 on the George Price Highway.

BEL apologizes for the inconvenience caused by these unscheduled power interruptions and thanks customers for their patience while our employees worked to restore power supply last night and earlier today.
