Another problem reported by residents of the region is the lack of drinking water, most have wells that use electricity to extract water. Cristiano Rosler, 43 years old, History teacher, reported that the lack of electricity meant he could not use a pump to remove water from an artesian well responsible for supplying the property’s water tank.

“How can you imagine an Easter with chocolate, but without electricity and water? How to have a barbecue, wash dishes, take a shower? I’m charging my cell phone from the car’s cigarette lighter. I’m using gas lamps to have light at night and getting water from the reservoir to take a shower. My Easter was unforgettable in a negative sense,” he told ZH.

Note from the Equatorial CEEE

In a note sent to the press on Sunday (31), CEEE Equatorial reported that there are still 1,100 customers without electricity in the state due to feeder disconnections. The supply was regularized to 58.9 thousand, since the wind that hit the Metropolitan, Carboniferous and Center-South regions on Friday (29).
