Power Cuts in Lebanon Begin Monday

Hezbollah is on high alert this week, watching the situation in the Gaza Strip closely. More about that here. Nuna with Triumphant Mercy Lebanon says the tension adds to despair created by ongoing political, economic, and financial crises.

“The government is not forming; there’s a deadlock there. The ratio of the dollar to the Lebanese pound is completely crazy. We have lost 90-percent of the value of our currency,” Nuna says.

“Wherever you look, it’s just – it’s just difficult.”

Last week, Lebanon’s caretaker government warned of increasing power outages starting Monday. There’s not enough money in federal reserves to keep the lights on. “We don’t know if this is only pressure, like economic, political pressure, or if it’s going to happen,” Nuna says.

“During the war 30 years ago, we lived in a time when there was no electricity, but this was [before the] internet. Many people work online now; everything is online. Having no electricity and not being connected, I think, would be devastating.”
