KOTA KINABALU: A snake is being blamed for a one-hour power failure for 2,163 consumers in Kinarut area about 30km from here.
The snake had apparently caused an electrical trip in the 33kilo volt power supply line from Papar to Kinarut.
It is believed to have glided between the wires at about 9.25am on Sunday.
Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd Senior General Manager Ahmad Fuad Kasim said a team found the dead snake hanging between the power lines and immediately took steps to remove it and restored power by 10.30am.
He said among the areas affected were Kinarut town, Kampung Gusi, Taman Sungai Wang, Taman Rose Garden and Taman Kinarut Selatan.
He urged public facing electricity disruptions to call their Hotline 15454 or 088-515000 for assistance.
He said all complaints lodged via the official Hotline will be acted on immediately.
