Press Release WEB, Kralendijk, 14th October 2018.
Since the morning of 14th of October 2018, there have been various power outages going on in various neighborhoods on Bonaire.
The power cut was caused by last night's thunderstorm where lightning strikes caused parts to fail in the high voltage distribution network in different areas on Bonaire. As a result, WEB is carrying out repair work and is doing its best to repair the electricity supply in the neighborhoods that still experience power interruption as quickly as possible. We also inform that through security measures WEB monitors the weather developments before it lets its employees work on the electricity network. As consequence of the weather conditions, repair works can take longer than expected. The constant rain showers and thunder storms ensure that the repair work is stopped each time. WEB apologize for the inconvenience and relies on the public's understanding of the situation.
