1600 Homes Without Power in Apeldoorn

. ()

At least 1,600 households in parts of Apeldoorn and Hoog Soeren were without power this morning. They were also without water, due to a water line breakage, reported Omroep Gelderland. It's not clear yet whether the latter problem has been solved.Although the cause of the failure is still unknown, engineers have diverted the power through a switching station, according to provider Liander.


The problem was in the 10,000-volt network. ' which can be compared to the cables that route the power to the neighborhoods, where it's further distributed,' said a spokesman for Liander.

Whether the power failure and the water line breakage are related to each other is unclear. Water company Vitens was not available for information.
