Power Shortage Leads to Blackout in China's Liaoning Province

A power shortage in China’s northeast led to a widespread blackout across the city of Shenyang on September 23.

High coal prices and a shortage of electricity had forced companies in many places across the country to restrict or suspend production, local media reported.

Liaoning province had issued “Orderly Electricity Management Measures” in response to the power crunch since September 10, according to Liaoning Daily.

Further power shortages in the region had been reported, with a severe power outage warning issued by local authorities in Liaoning province on September 28, according to Liaoning Daily. Credit: Miaowu666666 via Storyful
