EXPECT ROLLING BLACKOUTS THROUGHOUT ECUADOR

Hydroelectric power shortages are causing rolling blackouts throughout Ecuador. The government expects at least a 5% cut in power to residential areas. Quito is expecting 10 percent with rolling blackouts in the afternoon. The primary river that feeds the hydroelectric dam is down from 90 to 30 cubic meters per second due to the worst drought in 45 years. Newspaper reports say that businesses should not be affected. However, our experience in the past is that most establishments can expect to suffer some type of blackout.
