Mansell, who is also Minister of Energy and Mines, also pointed out that at the time when the hurricane was hitting the country with winds of up to 260 kilometers per hour on Monday evening, November 16, more than 314,000 Nicaraguan homes were disconnected from the national grid.

Among the main damages to the electric system are in 149 kilometers of the primary distribution network, 629 poles and 134 transformers, Mansell stated.

The damages in the sector so far amounts to some 120 million cordobas (about US$3.5 million). This figure should be joined to losses estimated at 37 million of the national currency caused by Hurricane Eta, totaling 157 million cordobas (US$4.5 million), the ENATREL president said.
