Power cuts return to Buenos Aires as temperatures soar

Thousands of Edenor and Edesur customers were once again left without electrical power, as blackouts returned last night to areas of Buenos Aires City and surrounding areas.

Residents in the western neighbourhoods of Ciudadela, Haedo, Ramos Mejía and Merlo, part of the area covered by Edenor, spent yesterday evening without power and enduring temperatures up to 38°C, after blackouts began around 8pm.

"We called the company and they took our complaint but they warned us that they had nobody to send and that we would have to wait until Sunday," explained Marta, whose Cuidadela house had also suffered outages in December and at the beginning of January.

Although temperatures dropped more than 10 degrees early this morning, those affected continued without power. Residents of the City's Monte Castro neighbourhood staged a roadblock in protest, complaining that parts of the zone had been cut off for six days.

In the City, outages were also registered in Villa Santa Rita, Villa General Mitre, Caballito, Flores, Barracas, Boedo, Parque Chas, Villa del Parque, La Paternal and San Telmo.

In the conurbation, meanwhile, parts of Lanús, Olivos, Martínez, Quilmes, Temperley, Monte Grande, San Fernando, Castelar, Esteban Echeverría and Avellaneda were left without power.
