Stormy weather causes electricity cuts

The City of Cape Town would like to inform residents of power cuts, as stormy weather, and strong winds, has taken its toll on the City's electricity networks.

The City’s Charles Cooper said that the affected areas include:
Pinelands, Rondebosch, Plumstead, Observatory, Constantia, Tamboerskloof, Maitland, Paarden Eiland, and Parow Valley.

Cooper said that the electricity supply has only been interrupted to parts of these suburbs.

The City has dispatched all its available repair crews from City Electricity Services and they are out in the field determined to restore the power supply as soon as possible.

“We call upon residents living in these areas not to continually phone our electricity call centre, as this puts a great load on our telephone lines,” said Cooper.
“It makes it difficult for people, who are phoning in to report new possible interruptions, to get through,” he said.
