Karachi, August 11, 2022: As sporadic bursts of heavy rain and strong winds hit Karachi on Wednesday, K-Electric ensured the power supply to the city.
During the current spell, the maximum number of feeders affected due to rain were approximately 250 of more than 1900 feeders within KE’s network, the majority of which were temporarily powered down out of an abundance of caution in areas where prevalence of kundas or standing water could pose a safety hazard. These areas were also immediately restored upon receiving clearance from ground teams.
With the Met Department forecasting more rain spells in the upcoming weeks, the Spokesperson further added, “Citizens are advised to continue observing precautionary measures and continue to maintain a safe distance from all electricity infrastructure. Avoid using electrical appliances exposed to rains such as water motors as well.
Spokesperson further stated, “Our social media platforms and KE Live App are the fastest way for customers to stay connected for guidance and updates. Emergency electricity complaints creating safety hazards however, should be reported on priority using KE’s 118 call center.” The utility company remained available 24/7 for any queries or complaints.
