A 10-hour power interruption will be experienced in some parts of Leyte province on Saturday.

According to the National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP), to be affected by the power outage are areas served by the Leyte Electric Cooperative (Leyeco) II.

Because of scheduled maintenance works, power supply will be temporarily interrupted from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow.

“Normal operations will immediately resume after work completion,” the NGCP said.
