Completely missed this !
Didn't hear about it until after the hour. Local Philippine people knew about it, but thought it was an official power cut ( we usually have one Saturday a month without electricity ) so rushed out to buy kerosene, and other necessities, then didn't switch off - producing a net increase in wasted energy. Local power is hydro-electric : ) but expensive, as are appliances, if judged by the average Philippine wage - so electricity is used as little as possible.
