“The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) reports that, with uninterrupted activities, it has managed to restore power to normal,” he said in a statement after 29 hours of the service interruption.

Customers represent 19% of the total of 2.2 million in the states of Campeche, Yucatán and Quintana Roo, the entity most affected by the cyclone.

The CFE has restored the electricity service to normal for users affected in the states of Campeche, Quintana Roo and Yucatán due to the impact of Hurricane Beryl.

For the emergency, the state company had 2,330 electricians, 372 cranes, 624 vehicles, 68 emergency plants, six off-road vehicles, 39 mobile communication equipment and five helicopters.

Despite the passage of the emergency, CFE personnel “will remain in the affected region attending to individual reports, carrying out definitive repairs and strengthening the electrical infrastructure”.

Mexico feared the impact of Beryl, the first hurricane of the season and that has set an “alarming precedent” because a cyclone of maximum intensity in the Atlantic had never formed at this time of year, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) warned on Tuesday.

Beryl left more than a dozen deaths while passing through Caribbean islands after emerging a week ago and reaching category 5, but in Mexico there were no fatalities and little damage to infrastructure in Quintana Roo, the country’s main tourist destination to host Cancun.
