CABANATUAN CITY — Several parts of Nueva Ecija province suffered from power interruptions after heavy rains and strong winds toppled power lines during the onslaught of Typhoon Karding (international name: Noru).

In an advisory on Monday, Sept. 26, the Cabanatuan Electric Corporation (Celcor), which distributes electricity to this city, said an initial assessment showed that the typhoon damaged several power lines, poles, and other related structures.

“Transmission lines managed by the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) were also damaged. This will also affect our timeline for power restoration,” the Celcor stated.

“Rest assured that we are doing our best to bring back the electricity supply as soon as and as safely as possible,” it added.
