caused by a "one in 100,000"
t at the central power
t near Yayne, between
ovot and Ashdod,
Energy Minister Yitzhak
Modai said.

lure occurred when.a short
circuit at the Yavne- trans-
former tripped safety de-
vices that shut down
turbo-generators at the
main power stations in
Ashdod, Tel Aviv and Haifa.
The sudden outage
caused a thunderous explo-
sion at the Haifa station
which gave rise to initial
rumors of sabotage. But the
Electric Corp. spokesman
said the blackout was
caused by a 'technical
breakdown.
