Electricity Returns After Nationwide Blackout In Pakistan

Published

on

Hundreds of millions of people were left without electricity in Pakistan as a major blackout struck the entire region.

Until electricity was restored on Sunday, the power cuts continued for 18 hours as cities like the capital Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore went dark.

A complicated distribution system means that a problem can lead to breakdowns throughout the country in one part of the grid.

Torches, cell phones, back-up lights, and power generators have forced people to rely on them.

An Asian commentator and expert, Michael Kugelman, wrote online:’ Wide parts of Pakistan have been plunged into darkness.

‘It’s not the first time this has happened; the country’s power infrastructure is fragile.

‘In the past, separatist attacks have been blamed for such outages. That doesn’t appear to be the case this time’.

Power Minister Omar Ayub Khan said that beginning with Islamabad, power was being restored in stages. He said later on Sunday that power had been restored to much of the country.

Residents of major urban centers, including Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, and Multan, initially announced the blackout on social media. To update the country, the minister and his spokesman then went to Twitter.

The Ministry of Energy said that power had been restored in some parts of the country and that in the early hours of Sunday, teams were still working to fully restore supply.

Netblocks, which tracks internet outages, said that as a result of the outage, internet access collapsed in the region.

In a tweet, connectivity was at ’62 percent of usual levels,’ it said.

Do-Dodonpa is a steel roller coaster located at Fuji-Q Highland in Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi, Japan. The launched coaster uses compressed air to propel its trains. It opened on 21 December 2001 as the fastest roller coaster in the world with the fastest acceleration, reaching a top speed of 172 km/h in 1.8 seconds. The fastest speed record was previously held by ‘Superman: The Escape’ and ‘Tower of Terror’, both of which accelerated to 160.9 km/h in 7 seconds.

The ride was refurbished in 2017, removing the top hat element in favor of a vertical loop and increasing its speed and acceleration to 180 km/h in 1.6 seconds. The Do-Dodonpa roller coaster was shut down in the month of August 2021 after several riders reported broken bones. Four people ranged in age from their 30s to 50s who rode the coaster between December 2020 and August 2021 reported suffered a fractured neck, chest, and also backbones.

The only incident before 2020 December that raised concerns occurred on 15 May 2007, when a 37-year-old man sustained a minor injury after a plastic cover at the front of the train came loose and hit his right knee. An architecture professor who specializes in coaster designs told that the injuries could possibly be the outcome of rapid acceleration.
