Eastern Thessaloniki left without power for hours

A large part of eastern Thessaloniki was left without power for most of Saturday due to a significant failure spotted in the network of Public Power Corporation at the area of Depo.

The damage caused for unknown reasons at the cables left for hours three local distribution stations of PPC, on a day with maximum temperatures of 31 degrees.

The electricity failure started at 3.30 p.m. and continued until late in the afternoon.

Local businesses such as tavernas, cafeterias and pastry shops voiced their disgust for the prolonged power cut that had the quality of their service compromised, as PPC technicians were trying to locate the cause of the failure.
