Eva Gumapac went to Panglao town on Sunday, April 3, to escape the city due to no electricity in Bohol province.
“Diri ko kay it’s too hot and humid sa balay, ” said Gumapac.
Many residents tend to go out of their homes during a power outage to avoid heat and boredom.
Some of them are spotted on the province’s public beaches or in river resorts especially since the country’s dry season has already started.
In an advisory, the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP), there was a 12-hour power outage on Sunday.
The electricity was suspended at 6 a.m. It is expected to resume at 6 p.m.
NGCP said the Maasin-Ubay 138 kilovolt line is going to be shut down to ensure safety of the workers during the installation of pilot wires on the newly-constructed permanent towers Nos. 39 and 40 at Pres. Carlos P. Garcia and Ubay Municipalities.
Consumers of Bohol Light Company Inc. (BLCI) and Bohol Electric Cooperative 1 and 2 (BOHECO 1 and 2) were affected by the power interruption.
