Police spokesperson Capt Gerda Swart said power outages on Thursday night led to the disruption and the station has provided an alternative number temporarily.

Residents that need to report an emergency can phone 082-301-7958, or alternatively phone 10111.

Swart said the station is still operational and personnel are available to assist the community .
