The sudden blackout is thought to have occurred after a high-voltage line buried near Dongpae High School in Paju was damaged during a water facility repair carried out by Korea Land & Housing Corporation, according to local media reports.

The power outage affected apartment complexes, restaurants, movie theaters and traffic lights in the areas.
