LESCO system trips as heavens open

LAHORE: The aging distribution network of the Lahore Electric Supply Company tripped up at the first whiff of monsoon rain. Although the downpour provided locals with some relief from the scorching heat, it also led to the tripping of as many as 45 power feeders.

Several areas of the provincial capital remained in the dark for hours on end and caused huge inconveniences for citizens.
