Series of Blackouts in Kuwait

Kuwait blackout

Many in the social media were making fun of the series of blackouts in Kuwait that started after 24 hours from a statement by the minister of power “Our power systems are ready for the summer challenges”  Source. These came after a major blackout which I wrote about few months ago – link.

The blackouts have been happening for the last 5 days. One of them happened during college graduation ceremony,

while in other areas caused the traffic lights to stop. This picture shows a school student assisting in managing the traffic.

Those blackouts were confirmed to happen due to the the high temperatures. Some were fixed within an hour, while some others took longer after being dealt with by the emergency teams. Source
