Catalunya Reconnected

Posted on 28 March 2010 by dianew

Catalunya is finally back on mains power; three weeks after the freak storm that took out pylons all over the area, the last towns and villages have had their power restored, and the last of the generators driven away.

Many people were taken ill and ambulances called during the problems, and several kept in hospital, with most problems coming from faulty gas or oil heaters. Others had accidents in the dark, but no one was very seriously hurt.

Now the insurance companies start to settle claims for food spoiled in fridges and freezers during the problems. The electricity companies are still facing enquiries into how it all happened.
