The "biggest power outage ever" in Thailand blacked out 14 southern provinces Tuesday evening, plunging almost the entire South into blackness for lengthy periods.
The outage occurred about 7pm, and the lights reportedly started coming back on again in certain areas at 8pm.

Some lights were seen at 8.30pm in some areas of Phuket, Surat Thani and Hat Yai city.
