More than 20 hours after a major dust storm struck the metropolis on Wednesday, electricity supply in several areas of Karachi has not been restored.
Most of the city areas had plunged into darkness as soon as the dust storm started at around 08pm. The areas where power breakdown occurred included Gulistan-e-Jauhar, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, New Karachi, North Karachi, Federal B Area, Orangi Town, Clifton, Defence, Super Highway, Sohrab Goth, Surjani Town, Taiser Town, Nazimabad, Liaquatabad, and many localities in the downtown.
Electricity was restored in most areas, but residents of the Central Information Association, Saadat Amroha Association and other neighboring areas of Scheme-33 complained that there was no electricity in the last 22 hours.
KE did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the matter.
