Power has been restored in all the quake-hit areas of southwest China's Sichuan Province, except in two towns inundated by quake-formed lakes.

The National Development and Reform Commission announced that 235 towns have been reconnected to the power grid, while another seven are using portable generators.

The commission says there is currently no need to restore power in the two towns submerged by the quake-formed lakes because residents were evacuated and are now living elsewhere.
