Power lines are likely to break in rain and wind; Caution: KSEB

Thiruvananthapuram: KSEB has warned that the public should be vigilant as there is a possibility of power lines collapsing due to heavy rains and strong winds. In case of any such power outages or accidents, the concerned KSEB Section Office should be informed immediately or call the Emergency Number 9496010101.

The wind and rain associated with Hurricane Toute caused severe damage to the power sector. Even high voltage lines have been obstructed. Hundreds of power posts were broken and lines were damaged as trees fell and branches fell. Alappuzha district was the worst hit. Districts like Kollam, Thiruvananthapuram and Ernakulam were also badly damaged.

Even during the Covid epidemic, KSEB employees were fully active. In some places, power was restored overnight. Connections to hospitals, Covid treatment centers and oxygen plants were restored quickly and care was taken to avoid power outages.

KSEB will give priority to rectifying the faults in the 11 KV line which illuminates the entire area in case of power outage. Then the problems in the low tension lines that supply power to the customers will be fixed. KSEB informed that personal grievances will be resolved only after that.
