Local electric utility Cagayan Electric Power and Light Co., Inc. (CEPALCO) is strongly advising against flying of kites especially near power lines because aside from its safety concerns, it also causes unscheduled power interruptions in affected areas.

In a recent interview over at a local radio station, CEPALCO Assistant Vice President and Head of Customer and Community Relations Ms Marilyn Chavez said at least four (4) incidents of power interruptions last week were caused by kites coming in contact with power lines. See some photos below.

Here’s the advisory.
