Brazil has endured another major blackout, as officials remain unclear what is causing the problem
Brazil suffered yet another major blackout in a higher-scale Rio de Janeiro beach neighborhood earlier in the week, with employees sent home as restaurants and other businesses disposed of spoiled food. It was a sweltering 95 degrees Fahrenheit when the blackout hit, forcing residents and tourists to endure the summer heat while out on the beaches.
