Later that day, at 4:30 PM, the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines declared that power services were back to normal. NGCP, however, has yet to explain the real cause of the massive outage. Water supply in Davao City was also cut off by the blackout, with some areas in the city still parched up to Thursday evening. MindaNews photo by BJ Patino
