KOTA KINABALU: Power supply is slowly resuming in most areas in Sabah and Labuan after the statewide failure from 11.10am.

Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd expects the situation for the whole state to return to normal by 8pm today.

As at 3pm, nearly 70% of power supply to Kota Kinabalu had been restored. 

SESB managing director Abdul Razak Salim said power supply to Ranau, Tawau, Labuan, Keningau  and Semporna was back to normal by 1.55pm.

The blackout was triggered by a trip at the state’s power transmission grid.


Abdul Razak said the cause of the "unexpected" power failure was still being investigated.
