Updated 6.32am Tuesday.

Power went out in parts of Attard, Balzan, Birkirkara, Ħamrun, Msida, Qormi, San Ġwann, Santa Venera and Żebbuġ on Monday night.

Enemalta acknowledged the outage on its interactive map, saying it was addressing a fault in its network impacting these areas.

Some of those impacted by the power cut took to social media to express frustration and dread at what they feared will be another sleepless night.

But supply was restored to most areas within an hour, according to readers. There were no outages by early Tuesday morning.

Enemalta last week said its engineers were working intensively to stabilise the power grid after a series of widespread and long outages in several localities over the past two weeks. Its repairs, the company said, would enable it to re-route supply whenever faults developed.   

At the time energy provider blamed sustained heat for penetrating the road causing cables to overheat.

Enemalta had warned that a drop in temperatures will not mean that there will not be any more power cuts.
