Nagpur: Due to heavy wind and bad weather condition at Navegaon Khairi Headworks area, a major power breakdown developed which will adversely affect water supply to North and many areas of South Nagpur on Wednesday.
It was learnt that on Tuesday afternoon, at around 4 pm due to heavy weather conditions at Navegaon-Khairy Headworks, the Four Pole structure in the Electrical yard could not withstand the strong wind and collapsed.
