(AP) — A million-kilowatt generator failure Tuesday sent a blackout hopscotching Florida leaving some Floridians snarled at lightless intersections and others dining by candlelight. The failure occurred at 6:08 p.m ( at Florida Power and Light Company's huge Port Everglades generating plant here. The intricate system of grids by which power is fed from generating stations to consumers spread the blackout as far away as Daytona Beach, St. Petersburg and Fort Myers, while it left many closer areas unaffected. A power company spokesman said there was no way of telling how many homes and businesses lost their power. However, reports from several larger cities had thousands of consumers out of power. St. Petersburg reported up to 15,000 homes were affected Tampa had 11,000 homes blacked out. Both cities receive their electricity from companies other than FP&L, but power flickered out because of a drain on interconnecting lines. Orlando had 35 per cent of its population in darkness for about half an hour. The blackout hit all but a small portion of tourJ- ist-jammed Daytona Beach.

The plotters were not named. Tension in the capital also was attributed to the slaying of the former chief of staff, Maj. Abdul Raqeeb Abdul Wahab, although it was not known whether his' death was linked to the plot. Reports reaching Aden said Wahab was killed by troops loyal to Premier Hassan al Amri who shelled his house after a •quarrel between the two men. Wahab commanded the forces that defended San'a against Royalist advances last January.
