Now there's real solidarity."While the people of Venezuela die in hospitals because of the lack of electricity, we're not going to allow those close to the Maduro regime to vacation in Colombia, evading the reality of a people in agony," Colombia Migration Director Christian Kruger said.

This particular corridor carries three 765 kV (kilovolts) power lines, which are the largest and most important lines of the country. One of these lines, apparently the one between San Geronimo B and Malena, went out and overloaded the other two, so all three died. When all of a sudden the lines went off and power wasn’t getting through,...: the water wheels started to spin out of control (in the industry we call this scenario a “load rejection”). Protections systems kicked in and the turbines shut themselves off, hopefully with no damage. [my emphasis]
The engineers suspect that the overheat alarm was triggered by a forest fire. It is mandatory to keep vegetation trimmed under and around power lines, to avoid the risk of this kind of events. Anyone that has driven by the countryside and under these large power lines would see there’s a corridor under the lines. These corridors haven’t been maintained in years and there is a very hot summer going on. In a tropical country, this means the bushes can cover a line very fast.
Trimming vegetation under and near power lines is not a high-tech job so everything is going to pot in Venezuela if they weren't doing that. Also it looks like the turbines have suffered damage because they haven't been able to restore power for 5 days now.
This is the crazy thing about the US, they buy nuclear armed subs and bombers with taxpayers money but will let their own people die of preventable diseases.One that has diabetics dying daily in its own " land of the free" because the cant afford to buy insulin after the corporates jacked up the price
