As Karachi continued to receive moderate to heavy rainfall along with procellous winds on Thursday and Friday due to deep depression system ‘Gulab’ that passed by Karachi, K-Electric ensured power supply to the city and its adjoining areas remain stable and uninterrupted.

K-Electric teams remained vigilant and continued to monitor the situation as the weather intensified.

The majority of Utility’s distribution network consisting of 1900 feeders remained completely operative during the period and continued to provide safe and reliable supply of electricity.

Supply to some areas with high incidence of theft and kunda usage was preemptively shut down in the interest of public safety; the supply was restored after receiving clearance from KE’s ground teams.

K-Electric’s spokesperson commented “It is a relief that the intensity of weather has reduced and the chances of torrential rains have subsided.

As an impact of the deep depression system, Karachi and its adjoining areas continued to receive moderate to heavy rainfall in bursts throughout Thursday and Friday, and K-Electric ensured uninterrupted power supply during this period.

Very few of our feeders were temporarily powered off out of an abundance of caution owing to the prevalence of safety hazards in these areas such as kundas and encroachments of public infrastructure by TV and internet cables.
