Power cut hits Georgian capital again
Last Updated(Beijing Time):2010-09-06 11:34

A fire at a local power transmission sub-station on Sunday suspended electricity supplies to several regions of Georgia and halted the underground train services in the country's capital city of Tbilisi.

The Georgian National Electricity System blamed the power cut on a fire that went up at the Ksani 500 sub-station and damaged the "Kartli 2" power transmission line.

Power outages have occurred for several times in the country in recent months. In early August, a power cut also paralyzed the Tbilisi Metro, from which passengers had to walk through tunnels to evacuate.

In July, there was yet another power cut. All these incidents of power cuts were accompanied by shutoff of running water to urban residents.
