Hydra Island Power, Water Supply Disrupted by Blackout

Monday, 27 August 2018 12:57 PM

On Hydra island power and water supplies were disrupted by a power failure, leading Greek authorities to declare a state of emergency on the resort island.

The blackout occurred early Sunday, leaving the island's state-run health clinic running on an emergency generator along with a handful of businesses.

The state of emergency was declared Monday and a navy ship provided support for the water system. Greece's public grid operator said two more emergency generators were being shipped to the island.

The operator said the cause of the blackout remained unclear.

A short ferry ride from the mainland, the cosmopolitan Hydra was once home to late Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen and was the setting of the 1957 romantic movie "Boy on a Dolphin" starring Sophia Loren.
