Yesterday , on 17th of August 2020 Sri Lanka faced an island-wide power failure due to transmission failure at Kerawalapitiya Grid-Sub station.
Yet, there is a rumor roaming around that a transformer had blasted during a maintenance and no causalities has been reported so far. However, Ceylon Electricity Board stated that they have taken necessary actions to handle the situation.
