Energy supply restored in Mexico following earthquake

Energy supply in Mexico is 99 per cent reactivated following huge disruptions after a Richter magnitude 7.8 earthquake rocked a large swathe of southern Mexico.

Even though 2.5 million people were cut off from the main electricity supply for hours, Antonio Vivanco Casamadrid, head of the country's Federal Commission of Electricity (CFE), said the main spine of the national power grid was intact.

The quake saw 1907 MW leaked from the grid which in turn caused a disruption in electricity in the country.
