Authorities in the Republic of the Congo have announced that intermittent power cuts will affect the cities of Brazzaville and Pointe-Noire from Sunday, October 21, to Wednesday, December 5. According to officials, the planned electricity outages are due to scheduled maintenance on the country's main power plant. Associated transportation and other disruptions are possible over the coming weeks.
Individuals in the affected areas are advised to anticipate power outages in the coming weeks and to keep battery-operated devices fully charged whenever possible. Keep in mind that crime rates tend to rise after nightfall in areas without street lighting. In addition, individuals are advised to be cautious when driving or crossing streets if traffic signals are not functioning. Furthermore, individuals are advised to avoid all demonstrations, follow all instructions issued by authorities, and anticipate travel disruptions in affected areas.
