Social Share

Residents of several northern provinces have already faced power outages, and blackouts are causing havoc on the roads in at least one major city. Guangdong, a southern industrial center with an economy larger than Australia, is asking people to use natural light in their homes and restrict the use of air conditioners after power outages in factories.
