Power was not restored in some parts of Meegoda until this morning after a breakdown last evening.
A resident of the area told Asian Mirror that he had attempted to contact the Power Breakdown Unit of Colombo West on its number (0112146464) but solicited no response. Electricity Consumer Hotline 1987 was also not responsive and the Padukka Substation was not aware of a breakdown, he further said.
This person was successful in contacting the Power Breakdown Unit this morning and was told that a tree had fallen to an electricity power line, cutting off power.
"Someone called and told us. But we cannot find the location and the person who called did not give the location" the Breakdown Unit told the customer.
