I just called again and was told that all of Cabarete and Sosua was off until the problem (perhaps that power pole? ) is replaced,

Yeah there was an accident just outside of the airport. So whenever they have fixed the pole the power should be back.

Looks like the Delivery Van rear ended the Toyota.
To many of those drivers are unskilled and pass where they shouldn't with no regard for others.
Between them and the taxis passing on the right shoulder it surprises me this is not a daily occurrence

Apparently there has been 3 accidents, one in Puerto Plata, one close to Gran Parada (just before Star Hills) and one outside of the Airport, all affected the power lines. But yes so many, not only "delivery drivers" who shouldn't be on the road. Don't know if anyone else has taken the "driver's test" in Puerto Plata, but it was a joke. Just going around a block, and you're done.

My test was fine. Stand outside, 500 rd tip, done.

It would seem that, according to the published Edenorte outages, we will all be without power in Sosua, Cabarete and Sabaneta + more from 9 am to 4 pm today for maintenance!

Great. Power still on here on Sosua101 but for how long remains to be seen. Thx for the advanced warning.

Still on here too on circuit SABY 102 but expecting to go off at any moment - would be a nice surprise if it stays on but somehow I doubt it!

At least this time Edenorte posted the announcement before the power was cut. They usually post that info after the fact.

The maintenance I saw being done is on the very high tension lines along the main highway near Sosua beach that were being replaced.
I just went through that area about 20 minutes ago and they seem to have 3 more sections of those lines to run between at least two poles if that is where they are going to stop today. Hopefully that is all they need to do today.

I think it will still take longer than the predicted 3:59 PM.

That sounds like another couple of hours work so maybe by 6:00 pm ????

I suspect 6 PM could be the time power is restored now that it is almost 5 PM. I was thinking about 3 more hours from the time I went by.
