The service disruption occurred at around 8:15 p.m. after a billboard tarpaulin fell on Davao Light's 69kV subtransmission line in Bangkal Junction. Customers affected are from some parts of Ulas, Bangkal, Matina, Ecoland, Boulevard, Chinatown, San Pedro Square, Ma-a and R.Castillo.
Davao Light performed gradual restoration of power supply in the affected areas between 8:32 p.m. until 9:29 p.m.. This was implemented by temporarily transferring power load to the utility's ERA Substation in Bajada.
