Sharjah residents suffered a power outage on Wednesday afternoon, the second this week, reports Gulf News. The outage began at 2pm and last for approximately 10 hours. It affected a number of areas, including Al Wahda, Al Yarmook, Al Qasimia, Al Noof, parts of Al Nahda, Maleiha, Sharjah University City, and Industrial Areas 1, 4, 13, 15, and 17.

Another one? In the summer? That’s not right. Kipp can’t stand to be in a room for more than a couple of minutes without air conditioning during the summer, so we can only imagine what this week’s been like for Sharjah’s residents.
