      The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE

      is reported to be stable," they said.

      The massive blackout occurred at 8:32 a.m., the CFE stated that it was because "six high voltage lines went out of operation

      ". They also informed that they were working to reestablish electric services and that more than one million people were affected. CFE - Peninsular Division
