Power Supply

Theses can be for a few hours or can sometimes go off for days at time, affecting shops, businesses and communications.

Freezer items can sometimes defrost and will need to be thrown away. Items in the fridge may go off quickly. Short term power cuts should mean your frozen items are ok, for other fridge items,  just keep the fridge freezer door closed.

Some of the better, larger complex's have there own back up system generator to keep fridges, freezers, lighting and water running.

Some shops and restaurants will close. If there is no electricity, the water pumps won't work to provide you with tap water, flush toilets or showers!

Some smaller shops selling frozen food may not have a generator, it has been known that some have re-frozen meats and other freezer items.
