At around 1.30pm local time on Friday (March 5th), people started posting on Twitter and Facebook that all places in the commercial center of Yangon were without electricity. The Yangon Power Supply Corporation, located in the Yankin region of Yangon, said power outages were continuing across the country due to management disruptions.
