The George Municipality is receiving complaints of unexpected power outages in parts of George. On initial investigation, it appears that the 66kV Eskom sub-station in the Southern Cape has tripped. Eskom has been informed to investigate. Some of the areas that have already been reported to have been affected are parts of George, Thembalethu, Pacaltsdorp, Kleinkrantz, Wilderness and as far as Mossel Bay, Sedgefield, Woodville and Karatera. Eskom has subsequently restored power supply and the George Municipality is busy restoring supply in its areas.
