Authorities in Sri Lanka are imposing rolling power cuts across the island nation as its deepening financial crisis leads to shortages of fuel and handicaps its power grid. Most sri lankan sellers are in critical situation due to the power cut .

Sri Lanka’s Public Utilities Commission said it will shut off the country’s grid for four and a half hours on Wednesday after two hours of power cuts on Monday and Tuesday

Sri Lanka is facing its worst-ever economic crisis, which has driven up prices and triggered food and fuel shortages across the country.
