Brazil on Wednesday sought to uncover the cause of a massive and mysterious blackout overnight. An estimated 50 million people – more than a quarter of Brazil’s 190-million-strong population – were affected at least ten states.
The huge Itaipu hydroelectric informed in its official Twiter, that the power returned at 6am, local time, and hasn’t register of any malfunction in the facility, said the blackout did not start at the hydro-electric complex.
He said that the cause of the failure had not been determined. It said the most likely cause was a failure at one or more points in the transmission system caused by a strong storms uprooted trees near to Paraná e Sao Paulo just before it went off-line.
