Taiwan probes massive power cut that affects millions of householdsBy Jess Macy Yu and Jeanny Kao TAIPEI (Reuters) – Taiwan said on Wednesday it was investigating a massive power blackout that hit businesses and residential homes, affecting close to seven million households on the heavily industrialized island amid sweltering heat. President Tsai Ing-wen apologized for the crisis which left millions of homes without power and hit offices and factories on the island of nearly 24 million people late on Tuesday. The worst appeared to be over by Wednesday afternoon, with power fully restored and little impact on Taiwan’s leading technology manufacturers.
