In a statement on its website, PDS said its engineers were working to rectify the faults and restore power to the affected areas.
It also urged those affected by the outage to call their call center to have it address.
“PDS wishes to inform its cherised customers and the general public that the heavy rainstorm that hit Accra and its environs during the evening of Sunday 14th April, 2019 has caused outages in the Distribution system.
