      Power Back in Tzfat Surroundings; Winter Demand Record

      The Israel Electric Company announced, Sunday evening, that it had restored power to at least 14 communities surrounding the central Galilee city of Tzfat (Safed). The utility said crews were still out in the field in an effort to reconnect part of the Gush Halav bloc and the communities of Bar'am, Dovev and Yiron on the Lebanese border.

      The electric company said demand reached 11,570 megawatts, an all-time winter record.
