A Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (Sewa) official said power was disconnected temporarily to lay large power cables in the area. “Power has been turned out temporarily to carry out the expansion project,” the official pointed out, adding, the work would be completed in a few hours.

However, residents, especially office-goers who returned home in the night, were caught unawares due to the power outage.
