Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.1 | Relevance 3.9

Lebanon’s power grid shut down Saturday after weeks of providing only a few hours of electricity each day. The nation’s two main power plants, which had become short of fuel resulting from a years-long economic crisis, stopped working completely, leaving fuel-powered generators as the country’s only source of power. By Sunday the Lebanese army dipped into its fuel reserves to reinstate a partial restoration of power.
