According to Reuters, much of Venezuela is without electricity for a fifth day.
The power blackout has now crippled the nation's oil exports, leaving people struggling to find necessities like food and water.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro blamed the blackout at the Guri hydroelectric dam on saboteurs from the United States.
But the fallout is more pressing to the Venezuelan people.
After five days without power, food has rotted in refrigerators at a time of widespread food shortages, while hospitals have struggled to keep equipment operating.
Without running water, people living in and around the capital of Caracas have been forced to fill containers with water at streams flowing from the mountains overlooking the city.
