Guri Dam fills up

Water level at Guri Dam, in meters above the level that would require that turbines be shut down. Guri provides about 70% of Venezuela's electricity. Water levels are rising better than anyone expected, meaning that the end of the world is deferred until further notice. The next crisis: electricity transmission, which can't handle the fast-growing power load. Yesterday's catastrophic blackout on the Caracas Metro may be a sign of things to come.
