  • DEVELOPING: Venezuela's Taps TURNS BLACK, Water Delivered in Cement Trucks

Earlier Thursday morning, a convoy was seen leaving the U.S. Embassy in Caracas.

"US citizens residing in Venezuela, traveling to Venezuela or traveling in Venezuela should strongly consider departing Venezuela", Palladino said.

Venezuela is gripped by an acute economic crisis that has fueled the rise of opposition leader Juan Guaido, the national assembly speaker who in late January declared himself to be the interim leader.

"Today, all U.S. diplomats remaining in Venezuela departed the country".

Power had returned to many parts of Venezuela after a nationwide outage last week, with the country's main port terminal of Jose, which is crucial for the country's oil exports, resuming operations.

The water supply, the outlet reports, has been intermittent "for months", and was almost non-existent this past week, as the country struggled with blackouts - the result of a "catastrophic failure" at one of the country's largest hydroelectric plants, which had a domino effect on the country's power grid.

Information Minister Jorge Rodriguez said power had been restored in the "vast majority" of the country. The subway began operating in the capital, Caracas, though not all of its stations were open.

The country began returning to normal on Thursday following a near-total weeklong blackout that the government has blamed on what it calls sabotage encouraged by the US. USA officials and Guaido said the allegation is absurd and that government corruption and mismanagement caused the infrastructure collapse in a country already suffering hyperinflation and shortages of basic goods.

The OPEC nation suffered its worst blackout in history last week following technical problems that the government of President Nicolas Maduro called an act of US -backed sabotage but critics dismissed as the result of incompetence. The U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has announced on Monday, March 11, 2019, that it will withdraw all remaining U.S. personnel from the U.S. Embassy in Caracas this week.

Maduro accuses Guaido and the United States of plotting an invasion. Russian Federation is an ally of Maduro, but its oil interests in Venezuela have been jeopardized since the Trump administration hit PDVSA with sanctions in January.

U.S. citizens now in Venezuela should consider leaving the country amid the ongoing political and humanitarian crisis in the South American nation, Department of State Deputy Spokesperson Robert Palladino said.

At a press conference on Thursday afternoon, State Department spokesman Robert Palladino revealed the government has revoked hundred of visas from "Maduro-aligned" Venezuelans over the last four days.

Maduro's government in January cut ties with the US over its recognition of Guaido as Venezuela's rightful leader, a stand taken by about 50 other countries that contend Maduro's re-election previous year was rigged and that he has no legitimacy.
