December 11-like  power breakdown  in Karachi disrupts life

KARACHI: Many parts of Karachi city as well as Hyderabad and Jamshoro plunged into darkness early Sunday after Guddu-Dadu transmission line tripped due to a technical fault.

The sudden and prolonged power outage left residents of Nazimabad, Defence, Shahra-e-Faisal, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Nursery, PECHS, Shah Faisal Colony, Landhi, New Karachi, Clifton, Landhi, Korangi and other areas in complete darkness.

Spokesperson of K-Electric – power company responsible for supplying electricity to Karachi – said they are working to resolve the issue, however, it may take hours before supply is completely restored.

On December 11, large swathes of the country had suffered from a similar power breakdown after the national grid system collapsed reportedly due to low frequency ratio.
