PHUKET: The downing of three electricity power poles about 500 metres from Le Meridien Phuket Beach Resort on Soi Karon Nui this morning has left residents in parts of Karon without electricity.

 

However, the Phuket Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) Office, who are currently in the process of replacing the poles, has confirmed that the supply should be reconnected by midday.

 

The incident has also caused traffic problems in the area.
