BIRATNAGAR, Aug 16: Power supply has been restored in Morang and Sunsari districts after five days of blackout.
The power supply to the districts was cut off after monsoon – triggered flooding entered the substation building at Sunsari causing considerable damages to the equipment on Friday night.
The water was drawn out of the building through six pumping sets on Sunday. The electric power was restored after tests were carried out on the equipment inundated by the floodwaters.
Although the power supply resumed last night, many places faced power outage from 3 am onwards. The members of the general public here have heaved a sigh of relief following the restoration of power. RSS
