A failure in Central America's electrical grid left millions of people without power for hours in at least four countries Monday.
Honduras was the country hardest hit, with the entirety of its territory and its more than 9 million inhabitants affected. Traffic snarled as more than 600 stoplights went dark in the capital, Tegucigalpa.
An unfortunate reminder of the importance of reliability and resilience of the grid, and how such characteristics are not guaranteed.
