Power Shortage Warning Issued for 2nd Day in Korea Updated: 2012-08-08 12:00:00 KST

Power Shortage Warning Issued for 2nd Day in Korea
The Korean government issued an alert on the nation's power reserves for two straight days on Monday and Tuesday.
A surge in power consumption from the record heat wave in Korea prompted the Korea Power Exchange to issue a "code yellow" warning after the country's electricity reserve dropped to below 3 million kilowatts at around 2 p.m. Korea time.
Later the agency downgraded the warning to "code blue" after the exchange managed to raise the power reserves through voltage control and advising factories to reduce power consumption.
The latest surge in energy use is largely due to one of the longest streaks of heat wave in the nation where even nighttime lows have remained at over 25 degrees Celsius, since July 27th.
