No power in Walmer and surrounds - Municipality attending

JUNE 18, 2015

The residents of Walmer and surrounding areas woke up without power on Thursday morning - and it is not load shedding.

This is because the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality also announced in the morning that it had lost electricity supply at the Walmer no. 3 breaker, which affects the residents of Walmer, Charlo and surrounds.

"Staff attending to restoration of supply, no timeframe available," the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality said.

In the past week similar power outages occured in the Metro due wet and cold weather which necessitated increased electricity demand on the system.
