Meralco works round-the-clock to restore electricity service in parts of Metro Manila, nearby provinces

CALOOCAN CITY, Nov. 14 (PIA) -- The Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) on Friday said its line crews continue to work on restoring electricity services in areas that remain without electricity.
As of  Friday morning, there are 453,349 customers that remain without electricity in areas that include parts of Metro Manila, Bulacan, Cavite, Rizal, Laguna and Quezon Province.
“From 3.8 million affected customers during the onslaught of Typhoon Ulysses, our line crews have  remained unrelentless in restoring electricity service in these areas and the customer count is now down to 453,349,” Joe R. Zaldarriaga, Meralco spokesperson, said in a briefing.
He added that restoration may take a little longer for areas with severe flooding and where Meralco’s distribution facilities sustained heavy damages such as toppled poles, downed wires and damaged transformers.
“Rest assured, our line crews will continue with the restoration works. We appeal for everyone’s continuous understanding and patience, as our crews work to bring back power service at the soonest possible time,” Zaldarriaga said. (PIA NCR)
