By SPUTNIK – According to Argentine newspaper Clarín, the power cut occurred shortly after 07:00 (12:00 GMT), causing massive power outages in Argentina and Uruguay and some regions of Paraguay, Chile, and Brazil. The blackout has abruptly interrupted the railway and the subway services, also creating numerous problems on roads due to a traffic lights shutdown.

“A massive failure in the electrical interconnection system left all of Argentina and Uruguay without power”, electricity supplier company Edesur said in a tweet, commenting on the problem.

“At this moment, we are working to determine the reason for this failure and be able to restore the supply in the shortest possible time”, said the official Twitter account of the Provincial Energy Company of Córdoba.

According to news site Infobae, Edusar has confirmed “the blackout is at a country level and also affects Uruguay” and said that nothing like this had ever happened.

Preliminary reports say that the affected provinces in Argentina were Santa Fe, San Luis, La Rioja, Formosa, Chubut, Cordoba, and Mendoza.

At the moment there is no official information about the causes of the incident

The combined population of Uruguay and Argentina is about 48 million people, however, it is unclear how many people have been affected by the power failure in the region.


Según se dijo desde EDES “debido a un evento de Black Out, se encuentran sin suministro múltiples ciudades y provincias argentinas.
Fue “una falla masiva en el sistema de interconexión eléctrica” agregó EDESUR.
Se desconoce hora de restablecimiento.
