An accident in the energy system has caused energy supply problems in different districts of Yerevan and across the provinces of Armenia.
The Yerevan metro has stopped working because of power fluctuations. All passengers have been evacuated.
Yerevan Thermal Power Plant and Hrazdan’s 5th block are down, Armenia’s Deputy Prime Minister Tigran Avinyan said in a Facebook post.
He added that work is underway so that the problem can be settled until 7 pm.
