    May 31, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      JUCHITAN, Oaxaca, May 31 .- As a result of the rains generated by tropical depression Agatha in the Oaxacan territory, power outages were recorded, so the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) has only managed to restore power supply to 35% of affected users.

      In a press release, the CFE informed that the affected areas are centered in the states of Veracruz and Oaxaca, with an interruption of service to 70 thousand 82 users, which represent 1.5% of the total number of CFE users in the region.

      In accordance with its emergency response protocols, the CFE had a team of 1,324 electrical workers, 231 cranes, 412 vehicles, 45 emergency plants, 17 lighting towers, 2 all-terrain vehicles and 1 helicopter.

      Regarding electric power supply in the Coast region, it is preliminarily reported that the municipalities that are without this service due to the effects of Agatha are San Agustín Loxicha, Pluma Hidalgo (where a transformer exploded in the center of the town), Santo Domingo Ozolotepec and San Mateo Piñas, Santa María Huatulco and San Pedro Pochutla.

      CFE personnel will continue working until the power supply is restored to normal. During the inspections, problems of blockages due to overflowing rivers, landslides and fallen trees that hinder access were detected.

      The CFE stated that through the National Civil Protection System it is in close coordination with the Ministry of National Defense, the Ministry of the Navy, the National Water Commission, the Ministry of Health, and state and municipal governments to deal with this contingency.
