Blackout across Lahore, city plunged into darkness

LAHORE: Black out has been reported across Lahore as the city plunged into darkness.

It has been reported that more than 50 feeders tripped due to high demand of electricity as humid Weather continue.

Areas affected included Bund Road, Shadman, Township, Johar Town, Sabzazar, Green Town, Multan Road and others.

Steps for resumption for electricity are underway.

A similar power breakdown in May deprived most of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) of electricity.

Power supply to several cities, including Lahore, Faisalabad, Peshawar, Swat, Multan, Bahawalpur and Muzaffargarh, were suspended for several hours. The breakdown resulted from tripping of Guddu-Muzaffargarh power line, which led to faults at Tarbela and Guddu power stations, as well as other power plants.
