Over 71,000 Homes without Power in Chile’s Capital following Snowstorm

SANTIAGO – More than 71,000 homes are still without power following the snowstorm that hit Chile’s capital earlier this weekend, electric utility company Enel said Sunday.

The Las Condes, Vitacura, La Reina, Lo Barnechea, Ñuñoa and Providencia neighborhoods, all located on the east side of Santiago, are the areas with the largest number of homes without electricity.

Some utility customers have been without power for more than 30 hours, Enel said.

The snowstorm hit the capital on Saturday, toppling hundreds of trees that fell into power lines, causing outages in different sections of the grid.

Utility crews are working to restore power to affected customers, Enel said, adding that more than 300,000 homes were initially left without electricity.
