The power failure in Jeffreys Bay this morning was due to unexpected load shedding from Eskom.
Power was restored at around 10.30 am.
The power will be off in Humansdorp, and possibly St Francis and Cape St Francis, from 14:00 to 16:30.
Meanwhile, Eskom has officially announced that load shedding will begin from 9am today, across South Africa.
This follows Eskom declaring a state of emergency earlier this morning.
Load shedding is expected to last until the weekend.
