CARACAS (Reuters) - A power blackout hit swaths of Venezuela on Monday, including the capital of Caracas and a major oil-producing province, darkening office buildings and homes and knocking out traffic lights, witnesses said.

It was the second time this year the OPEC nation's electricity grid, creaking from outdated infrastructure, suffered a major outage.

Venezuela's oil refineries are hit by frequent outages. But it was not immediately possible to reach officials from the state-run oil industry for information on Monday's blackout.
