A feeder trip is being blamed for a partial blackout across Port of Spain.

Since 11:00 AM, power supply across parts of the capital has been interrupted, knocking out traffic lights and electricity to businesses.

At 12:30 PM, a T&TEC official confirmed to Guardian Media that supply should be restored within the hour to the affected areas.

The outage extends as far west as Ariapita Avenue, east as Woodford Square, north as Park Street and south as Independence Square.

With traffic lights inoperable, traffic delays are expected across the capital.
