Explosion at substation wipes out power to half of Durban

by 14/03/2018 09:56:00 0 comments 1 Views

However‚ power has been restored in some areas across the city. “Technicians are on site to assess the damage and the cause of the explosion.”

A well-placed source within the city’s disaster management sphere confirmed that a fire incident had been reported at the substation. He hastened to add that the outage and the fire were not absolutely connected.

He said that “a flash” had been reported‚ warranting a response from the fire department.

The flash referred to could have been the ignition of oil emitted from the transformers in a fine mist‚ or the arching of high voltage power.

He said an investigation would be required to determine the root cause.

Meanwhile the KZN department of health said patient care was not affected when generators at the RK Khan hospital - which were activated following the outage - had “blown” causing black plumes of smoke.
