Powercut in Lausanne 1005

Hi, first time experiencing a power cut here... The power went off at midnight and six hours later it's still NOT ON!!!! Is this normal??? I was expecting it to come on within the hour at least I wouldn't care but I have a baby and the boiled water from six hours ago is running out to make her formula. This is insane it's been almost seven hours now and no electricity there seems to be no movement or neighbours that seemed bothered by this the whole building has no electricity and the apartmey opposite has power.

No, this is not normal. Particularily if the other building HAS power. I hope, the matter got settled in the meantime, if not, you ought A) to contact the Electricity Organisation of Lausanne, and/or B) an emergency electrician, as it must be something in your building

Re: Powercut in Lausanne 1005

This happened to me once and after a few hours I went to ask a neighbour what was going on. Turns out it was a problem in my apartment alone. If you say your neighbour has electricity then possibly it could just be you too.

Anyway, just like you, it happened to me on a Sunday. Annoying.

Let me know if you need a number for an electrician. I had an english speaking guy come help me when it happened.

It might be the general fuse of your apartment that blew.
