Parliament cuts short meeting due to power outage on Thursday, traffic lights off in Vilnius

The power outage was reported at the parliament at about 4 p.m. (local time), first in part of the Seimas complex and in the plenary room 15 minutes later.

Parliamentarians walked out of the hall.

Martynas Burba, spokesman for Energijos Skirstymo Operatorius (ESO) power distribution operator, told BNS that the malfunction was reported at about 3:50 p.m. due to voltage spikes in the Litgrid network.

“Undervoltage was reported in the Litgrid transmission network, causing our automatic safeguards to go off. Power supplies to the Seimas have been restored, we are working to establish power in other objects, the team is working,” Burba told BNS.

Susisiekimo Paslaugos, the Vilnius municipal company of public transport, said traffic lights had gone off for some time in all of the Lithuanian capital.
