­Minister of Oil, and Minister of Electricity and Water Bakheet AlRashidi on Saturday announced the activation of the emergency plan to include all sectors. In a telephone conversation with the Kuwait TV, the minister said the electricity network is fully ready in terms of production and distribution.

He added that the ministry's emergency room is linked to the state's main room to follow up weather developments. The ministry is able to produce water and electricity with a capacity exceeding needs of consumers, he stressed.

The capacity of producing electricity is above 10,000 megawatts, while consumers need not more than 7,000 megawatts, he explained.

The ministry and its staff are ready for any emergency, and there are continued follow­up processes through the emergency center (152) and the ministry's Twitter account, Al­Rashidi noted. He issued warnings when reoperating the electrical current. Meanwhile, the ministry on its Twitter account urged all people not to approach power lines for their safety.
