Dubai in the Dark :: konkaniworld

If a powerline did catch fire, the most likely cause is that the demand on the system for some region of Dubai was pulling more power through that line than it was designed to carry. Most of us take electricity for granted and don't notice all the work that goes into making sure the system is designed well, rarely fails, and is improved to keep with the pace and location of development. The consequences of a failure are large of course, which explains why great effort is made to avoid them.

Dubai airport has denied flights were delayed. It is not good public relations to deny facts that are widely known to those affected to be true. You lose your credibility, and that's a tough thing to get back.
