Mexico says cities of Tijuana, Ensenada hit by blackout

September 3, 2019

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s federal electricity utility says the border city of Tijuana and the nearby cities of Ensenada, Tecate and Rosarito have been hit by a blackout.

The Federal Electricity Commission says Monday’s outage was caused by the failure of two generator units at a privately operated power plant in Mexicali, the capital of Baja California state.

The commission says the outage affected about 22% of customers in Baja California, but doesn’t say how many households that represents.

But it says it’s working to re-establish service.
