Grid failure: Power outage hits Chittagong
Chittagong and its adjacent four districts today experienced power outages twice following technical glitches at Hathazari power substation.

People of Chittagong, Rangamati, Bandarban, Khagrachhari and Cox’s Bazar witnessed a blackout this noon following failure of the substation, said Prabir Kumar Das, an engineer of Power Grid Company of Bangladesh Limited.

Several hours into its restoration, a breaker of a transformer at the same substation became dysfunctional around 5:30pm causing power outage in the districts again, said sources at Chittagong Power Development Board.
