Fire breaks out at a fuel storage tank in the Zahrani oil facility in southern Lebanon, with firefighters attempting to control the blaze. Fuel shortages amid a deep economic crisis have forced the country’s two biggest power plants to shut down.
People in #Lebanon have been conditioned to expect so little from the government grid that many barely registered the 24-hour cut this weekend. Why have power cuts become so rampant, how are people coping, & is there a long-term strategy?
Lebanon’s power supplies were back to normal on Sunday after a blackout the previous day when the country’s two biggest power stations shut down because of a fuel shortage, the Energy Ministry said.
What people are saying?
