RIO DE JANEIRO -- Brazil's two largest cities have been hit by a massive blackout that has also affected other parts of Latin America's largest nation.
Media reports say problems at a huge hydroelectric dam are to blame for the electrical outages affecting large parts of Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and other cities in several states.
