The former president of Mexico, Felipe Calderon, said he saw no precedent in the nationwide blackout that occurred on Monday afternoon, the day of the innocent saints, and that affected more than 10 million users, according to the data of the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE).
“I do not remember a precedent, at least close, of a registered blackout like the one that occurred today. It reveals technical problems that the national electricity system had solved long ago. Beware of the lack of expertise in a vital issue for the country” Calderón wrote from his personal Twitter account.
This afternoon, in at least seven states of Mexico a blackout was reported that generated concern in social networks. The Federal Electricity Commission reported that the problem was solved after 4:12 in the afternoon.
The blackout affected Line A of the capital’s Metro, while the IMSS reported that there were no setbacks in its hospitals.
The Attorney General of the Republic initially ruled out some type of attack on the CFE facilities.
The CFE announced that it would hold a press conference for what happened.
