'Mexico's Power Company Restores Electricity to 25% of Cancun'

Mexico's Power Company Restores Electricity to 25% of Cancun ~ from www.bloomberg.com in the UK.

Oct. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Mexico's state-owned power company has restored electricity to a quarter of Cancun and expects to have lighting for half the city by Oct. 29, said Alfredo Elias Ayub, director of the Federal Electricity Commission.

The power company, known as CFE, may take a month to return power to the entire Cancun and Conzumel area after Hurricane Wilma pounded the region for more than two days, cutting all electricity lines, Elias said in a radio interview on Radio Formula.

CFE restored about 28 percent of electricity to Playa de Carmen and has set a goal of having power back on for half of Cancun and Playa del Carmen by Saturday.

The company has yet to restore lights to resort islands of Cozumel or Isla Mujeres, Elias said.
