29-06-2011

Parts of Prague city centre suffered a power cut on Wednesday afternoon due to a substation failure. For about 45 minutes beginning at 5:15 PM, electricity supply to the area of Wenceslas Square and parts of Vinohrady was cut, bringing trams to a half-hour standstill. A spokesman for the city’s energy supplier, Pražská energetika, said the problem might have been caused by hot weather.
