    Default Power Outage in Bryanston

    Does anyone know what the situation is? We have been without electricity since Sunday night 6:00pm. It all started on Saturday night lost electricity just before the end of the SA game and came on at 3:30am, off again on Sunday pm from 2-3pm and then off again Sunaday night at 6:00pm till present (Tuesday 11:20am)

    Our freezer is defrosting and will have to through out the food. Do we calim from City power or from household insurance?
    Cheers

    In Bryanston too, also no power issues. I'm about 600m west of the golf course.

    Driving down Halifax (next to the Suzuki garage) I noticed one of those big Eskom generators in the street adjacent to Halifax, pretty much just behind the garage sitting in the road if that means anything

    We were down from about 9:30 until 17:30 on Sunday.

    We had the same problem. Lights were constantly flickering, our UPS would go crazy once in a while (due to bad power supply) and our tumble dryer just died out of the blue. Then one day our power was off for a whole day. We called City Power and they had someone out in about 40 minutes. They had been working on our power. Apparently the voltage was way, way too high. Next thing we know, there are 3 City Power vans outside our house.

    They had to replace a whole bunch of cables street side. To get it fixed, they worked from 5PM all the way through to 1AM. The next morning they were back there at about 10AM. Since then, we have not lost any electrical appliances or had any flickering lights. I was very impressed with how quickly they resolved what seemed like a complicated issue.

    I suggest you get someone out to take a look. Some of the infrastructure is Bryanston is pretty old.
