KARACHI: A major power break down has hit Karachi, leaving most parts of the city without electricity.
According to sources, most of the grid stations of Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC) tripped and suspension of power supply from Bin Qasim and Korangi Gas Turbine led this break down which has sent 90 percent area of the city into darkness.
Work at the airport has been affected due to the power break down.
Traffic signals across the city also stopped functioning, leading to traffic mess in the metropolis.
