South Africa: Power Interruptions Being Experienced In Tsomo, Other Areas May Last Longer – Eskom


Residents of Tsomo and surrounding areas in South Africa are experiencing interruptions in electricity supply as a result of storms and extreme weather conditions experienced over the past few days, South Africa’s power utility company Eskom has said.

The weather conditions have also affected power supply in Cofimvaba within Intsika Yethu Local Municipality.

“The affected areas have been isolated to keep them safe while Eskom teams are embarking on a complex operation to reconstruct and restore electricity supply to the affected areas as soon as possible,’’ Eskom said in a statement on Thursday, February 8, 2024.

Eskom noted that supply restoration might take longer, since it might pose a challenge to access certain sites.

“We thank the affected customers for their patience,’’ Eskom said.
