Counties and cities across Taiwan began reporting unexplained power outages on Thursday morning (March 3) and Taiwan Power Company (Taipower, 台電) personnel are currently investigating the cause.
At 9 a.m. on Thursday, power outages were reported across Taiwan. Areas known to have been affected include Taipei City, Kaohsiung City, Keelung City, New Taipei City, Hualien City, Keelung City, and Tainan City.
Many districts in Taipei have been affected, even on Renai Road in front of the Office of the President is experiencing power outages with traffic lights at many intersections turning dark. Many intersections have turned into chaotic scenes with traffic police quickly dispatched to direct vehicles. This is a developing story and we will bring you more as it is reported.
The power company said “emergency repairs” were underway in an update posted on Facebook later on Thursday, noting that “the southern region is currently out of power, and the northern and central regions are also experiencing power outages.”
The widespread blackout comes as a US delegation of current and former defense officials visits the island this week, meeting with Foreign Minister Joseph Wu and President Tsai Ing-wen. Ex-secretary of state Mike Pompeo is also among the group.
A spokesperson for the president’s office, Zhang Dunhan, apologized for the inconvenience and said power would be restored as soon as possible, adding that the presidential palace remained unaffected by the outages. A planned livestream for a meeting between President Tsai and Pompeo has been “temporarily canceled,” however.
Prepare for the invasion of Taiwan!!
