UPDATE: 'Major' power outage in north of Joburg as Eskom power line trips

City Power Johannesburg says a high voltage Eskom power line feeding most of its substations in the north of Johannesburg has tripped.

This has caused a "major power outage" in the northern areas of the city, including Midrand.

"We apologise for the inconvenience, our technicians are attending to it," it said in a tweet just before noon. 

City Power did not say what caused the power line to trip. 

Power utility Eskom, meanwhile, instituted stage 4 load shedding on Monday due to a shortage of available capacity.
