Sun.Star Cebu - - NEWS PLUS - ED­I­TOR: Ju­je­may G. Awit @yourJGA

An 11-hour black­out will take place on Sun­day, Dec. 9, in 15 lo­cal­i­ties where elec­tric­ity is be­ing sup­plied by the Cebu Elec­tric Cooperative (Ce­beco) 1.

This, as Ce­beco 1 is set to re­place a di­lap­i­dated elec­tri­cal post along the 69-kilo­volt line from the City of Naga to Si­bonga town.

Due to the 11-hour power in­ter­rup­tion on Sun­day, eight out of 15 barangays in Car­car City, where water is be­ing sup­plied by the Car­car Water Dis­trict, will ex­pe­ri­ence low pres­sure to no water sup­ply.

Sonon Dakay, Ce­beco 1 ra­dio ten­der, said the power ser­vice in­ter­rup­tion would run from around 7:30 a.m. un­til 6 p.m.

But in a state­ment, Ce­beco 1 of­fi­cials said there is a pos­si­bil­ity that the power in­ter­rup­tion will end ear­lier than sched­uled as long as un­avoid­able cir­cum­stances will not oc­cur.

Aside from Car­car City, also af­fected by the 11-hour power in­ter­rup­tion are the towns of Si­bonga, Ar­gao, Dalaguete, Al­coy, Boljoon, Bar­ili, Du­man­jug, Ronda, Al­can­tara, Moal­boal; all barangays in Ba­dian ex­cept a por­tion of Matuti­nao; all barangays in Mal­abuyoc ex­cept Cerdeña; all barangays in Ale­gria ex­cept Inghoy and Va­len­cia; and all barangays in San Fer­nando ex­cept Balun­gag, Tu­bod and Tabio­nan.

Once the power in­ter­rup­tion starts, water sup­ply in eight barangays in Car­car City such as Pobla­cion 1, Liburon, Cana­su­jan, Per­re­los, Tuyom, Val­ladolid, Ocaña and Guadalupe will be af­fected as well.

In an ad­vi­sory, the Car­car Water Dis­trict urged their clients, es­pe­cially those liv­ing in the eight af­fected barangays, to store an am­ple sup­ply of water in prepa­ra­tion for the water in­ter­rup­tion.
