Karachi Experienced A MAJOR Blackout Last Night And People Are Losing Their Minds

By Fareeha Akhtar | 18 Aug, 2018

Karachi, Pakistan’s biggest city, had been plunged into darkness due to a blackout. Around 85% of Karachi was experiencing a power breakdown because of tripping at Bin Qasim high transmission due to the wind.

It had already been drizzling and is also expected to rain in Karachi, which might worsen the situation.

Power breakdown areas include Saddar, Garden, Federal ‘B’ Area, Liaquatabad, North Karachi, Nazimabad, North Nazimabad, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Gulistan-e-Jauhar, Bahadurabad, Keamari, Kharadar, Meethadar, Soldier Bazar, Guru Mandir, Defence, Shershah, Malir and a bunch of other areas.

Basically, THE WHOLE OF KARACHI Y’ALL. WTF is going on!?

Soon, the blackout started being talked about everywhere. It even started trending on Twitter. People started losing their minds because kahin light hee nahi thi yaar. 

People had questions.

Some people weighed in on how it wasn’t just Karachi.

Others blamed nature. 

Waisay, Karachi can’t handle rain. It’s true.

People were NOT happy. Obviously.

Karachiites blamed K-Electric for always disappointing them.

Imran Khan’s promise of a Naya Pakistan started being questioned too, ainvayi.

Seriously, a lot of people dragged in Naya Pakistan. 

Sab ek din main fix nahi ho sakta, doston. 

Bilawal Bhutto was also being asked to take some action.

But the jokes that came out of it. So good. 

Same, Karachi. Same. 

Meanwhile, this guy had a conspiracy theory.

The fault in the line will supposedly take around 7-10 hours to fix, but with K-electric’s record, people are doubtful. Especially since it’s supposed to rain tomorrow. Let’s hope the problem gets fixed soon!

Is the power back in your area? Let us know!
