Bali has run out of power after a major power cut Wednesday afternoon.

Electricity was turned off on the tourist island of Indonesia shortly after 12:00 p.m. local time, following a power outage between a coal-fired power plant and a substation, Nine News reported.

The homes remain without power in Denpasar six hours later and the traffic lights are still low in the city.
