MANILA, Philippines – The Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) continued to implement rotating power outages on Monday, six days since typhoon “Glenda”(international name: Rammasun) struck parts of the Philippines.

“There will be a 2-3 hour rotational brownout due to power supply insufficiency,” Meralco said in a statement.

“Glenda’s” strong winds toppled electric poles and downed transmission lines disconnecting many power plants from the grid.

As of 6 a.m. On Monday, Meralco said 95 percent of its franchise area already has power.

“Parts of Batangas, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Metro Manila, Quezon and Rizal are still being restored,” it added.
