Karachi, July 05, 2019 (PPI-OT): The power supply to some parts of Karachi, which saw brief interruption due to intermittent showers on Friday morning, was restored on priority and is now as per routine. Areas affected included some parts of Bahadurabad, Tariq Road, Safoora Chowrangi, Lucky Star, North Karachi, Baldia, and few pockets of Saddar, Landhi and Orangi.

According to a KE Spokesperson, “KE teams remained fully alert following prediction of rain and responded swiftly to restore electricity to affected areas. While waterlogging in few low-lying areas caused difficulty in restoration work, power supply to strategic installations including key hospitals, KWSB pumping stations, and the airport remained unaffected throughout.”

The power utility regrets inconvenience caused to customers due to inclement weather. Consumers are advised to stay away from any broken wires, electrical poles and transformers especially during rainy and windy weather.
