Electricity Supply Gradually Restored in Azerbaijan After Massive Blackout

The electricity supply in Azerbaijan was being gradually restored on Tuesday after a major blackout that left the country with no power for several hours, the energy ministry said.

The massive outage was caused by an explosion at a hydropower station in the city of Mingacevir following an overload of the electrical system due to a very hot weather and use of air-conditioners.
