Rain Good, Heavy Electricity Use Bad
Those concerned about a water shortage are glad for the rains that have continued throughout the country on Wednesday. But the Ministry of Infrastructure is warning against using too many electrical appliances at the same time. Dishwashers, washing machines, boilers and heaters used by many households at the same time could increase the chances of temporary power outages. The Ministry specifically warns about such usage after 5:00 PM. The public is asked to turn down their heaters and avoid power-hungry devices.
