The power supply to affected areas of Karachi restored to routine levels, shared KE in response to reports of interruption in some areas due to rain on Sunday night. Affected areas include Gulistan-e-Johar, North Nazimabad, FB Area, North Karachi, Baldia, PECHS and some pockets in Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Clifton, DHA and Scheme 33.
According to KE Spokesperson, “KE teams remained alert following prediction of rain and responded swiftly to restore electricity to the affected areas. While waterlogging in few low-lying areas, caused difficulties in restoration work, power supply to strategic installations including key hospitals, KWSB pumping stations, and airport remained unaffected throughout.”
KE regrets the inconvenience caused to its valued customers due to unforeseen circumstances. Moreover, consumers are advised to stay away from any broken wires, electrical poles and transformers especially during rainy and windy weather. The utility continues to urge citizens to refrain from using illegal means (Kundas) to abstract power.
