The Compañía de Fuerza y Luz will be turning off the power to an area of San Pedro today, including a large part of Barrio Dent.
The shutoff is from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. while workmen extend lines, the company said. The area is 600 meters south of Mall San Pedro and 800 meters west. Included is the Ministerio de Planificación on the Boulevard de Barrio Dent, the Embassy of Italy and businesses along Avenida Central. The mall also is listed, but that facility has its own backup power.
