WHYY Fresh Air, April 2, 2019
Venezuelans have been suffering one calamity to the next, but in recent weeks, much of the country has had to go long stretches without electricity.
New York Times journalist Nicholas Casey was in Maracaibo, Venezuela, in March when a six-day blackout hit, considered at the time the worst in the country’s history. He says people initially assumed the outage had been planned and that power would be restored after a few hours. But as hours stretched into days, the country fell into chaos. WHYY Fresh Air.
