In crisis-ridden Venezuela, electricity is also scarce

Stores are closed at a mall in Caracas, on February 10, 2016“This is madness, this is not the solution!” said Nataly Orta, 48, at the locked gate of the Lider mall in eastern Caracas. Authorities say the three-month restrictions will affect more than 250 shopping centers that must find other sources of power from 1:00 to 3:00 pm and again from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. Unable to generate their own electricity, most malls are shutting their doors during those hours.
