BEIRUT: Electricite du Liban warned Monday that Lebanon will suffer additional power rationing due to lack of funds to buy fuel oil as the country braced for a severe winter storm.

A source at EDL told The Daily Star that starting Monday afternoon power stations will gradually shut for several hours due to a shortage in fuel and gas oil.

Beirut could face additional power rationing than the already three hours of cut per day, while various regions in north, south and east Lebanon were likely to stay without electricity for up to 18 hours, according to the source.

The source attributed the problem to the lack of Finance Ministry funds allocated to fuel oil.

There was no immediate comment from the finance ministry.

The winter’s first snowstorm, named “Alexa,” is expected to hit Lebanon Tuesday and will last for an entire week.
