Lost power last night for one hour -- but it went again this morning. They

mad Power went out countrywide at about 7:30 am and did not come back on until 12 hours later. No running water either since some genius tore down all the towns water towers and replaced them with electric pumps.
We have re-named the day "stinky Sunday" since no one could bathe. eek

not
restored until over four hours later. According to a
press
release from Belize Electricity Limited, the blackout
was
caused when corrosion on system protection cables caused

a fault on the high power transformer at the San Pedro
substation. B.E.L. says it is in the process of
reviewing its
policy of preventive maintenance to prevent a similar
problem in the futur
