        Utilities in some regions intentionally shut down (i.e. Visayan Electric Co.) power in preparation or during the storm. Information on power outages can be found by connecting to one of the regional government webpages list above or through their twitter accounts. For example, Cebu Provincial Government reports that Bogo's electric grid and communications are operating with no failures reported as of 10:38 PM local time (Dec. 7)

        Dec. 7 - NGCP MEDIA ADVISORY. NGCP's power transmission service in parts of Bohol is affected by typhoon Ruby as it triggered the tripping at 3:10AM ofthe 100MVA Transformer at Corella Substation serving BLCI and parts of BOHECO I and BOHECO II franchise. Assessment on the outage is on-going.
