5 to 6 hours of power

The power has been extremely bad lately..... here's a few excerpts from an article in yesterday's local newspaper. ..............
The 18-hour blackouts are punishing the country, making everyone uncomfortable. The business community says it can't take it anymore, and in the streets, some people get angry when asked about the situation. There are reports of blackouts lasting for up to 18 hours from the capital to the greater part of the Cibao. Owners of mini-markets, supermarkets, cafeterias and butcher shops all say that their products go bad as a result of the blackouts, because they do not have emergency generators. Sales are down as well as people don't want to buy warm beverages.
