The power cut mainly hit the municipalities close to Brussels. Large parts of Sterrebeek, Tervuren and Wezembeek-Oppem were without power, just like various streets in Kraainem, Kortenberg, Vossem, Everberg, Leefdaal, Nossegem and Zaventem.
The problem was caused by a short-circuit in a transformer box in Wezembeek-Oppem. Eandis opted for a gradual redistribution of the power to get the electricity back on the net. Most problems were gone around 10:30.
