I am not sure waht it takes that much time to restore power in a well developed country like this. 800K Or 1M peopel got affected. The number should not matter how many got affected by winter storm. However CLP should prepare for incidents like this. I thought they learned to prepare from Hurricane Irene. Looks like they have n't. We are going into third day with no power.
