Massive Blackout Last Night at Rizal, Pasig and Manila

It was on the news this morning: Massive Blackout Last Night at Rizal, Pasig and Manila.

We're having dinner last night at around 9pm when the electricity went off. Later on we heard loud sirens and we assumed right away that there's an emergency and it's a fire. We all waited for the electricity to come back but it's already past 10 pm and still it's dark in our place.

Nothing to do, I decided to lay down and rest but there are times I wake up but still no power yet. Good thing is that it's a bit cool last night because of the drizzle so it was not hard for us to sleep. I woke up at around 5 am and luckily the power is back once again.

I watched the early news and it turned out that a power plant in Dolores, Taytay, Rizal caught on fire and it causes for the electricity to went off. Some of the sub-stations are connected to that plant and that is the reason why some other areas have no power as well. I hope that electricity will come back in other areas esp. those in the evacuation centers.
