Venezuela shuts down schools, offices due to massive electricity blackout

NSD Logo
Venezuela today shut down schools and offices due to a massive electricity blackout, affecting most part of the country.

In a tweet, Vice President Delcy Rodriguez said that President Nicolas Maduro made the decision in order to facilitate efforts for the recovery of electricity service in the country.


The blackout lasted for almost 16 hours. The lack of electricity has caused flights to be diverted from the main airport in Caracas.

This comes amid rising tensions over opposition efforts, backed by the US and some Latin American countries, to remove Maduro from power.
