The couple lives in the Campo Leopoldina neighborhood, one of the places that lost electricity after the heavy rains. In an interview with reporter Bruna Hemerly, from TV Gazeta Sul, Polyana reported that the power went out at 6pm, and only came back on this Friday (2), around 1:40pm. “It’s a lack of respect. We pay the bill on time and we need to go through this,” he pointed out.


Asked about the power outage problems in the municipality, EDP informed that teams remain mobilized to respond to incidents, in order to restore supply as soon as possible.

“The concessionaire clarifies that rain accompanied by strong winds and intense atmospheric discharges increases the volume of calls. Among the occurrences are, mainly, falling branches, trees, and throwing objects onto the electrical networks, which require longer repair times due to their complexity and significantly increase the level of criticality of the operation of the electrical system”, he pointed out, in note.
