The island of Mayotte was plunged into darkness last night. Indeed, a power failure has paralyzed the island around 6 p.m.
 
A 20,000-volt circuit breaker of the central electricity of Badamiers production exploded, according to a statement from Electricité de Mayotte (EDM). This caused a violent short circuit.
 
The center of Badamiers is the most ancient, thus that of Longoni could not take over, as indicated by the Journal de Mayotte newspaper. It is around 11 p.m that the electrical network has been restored.
 
The previous power outage took place on last October 30 for more than ten hours.
