Blackout in San Diego!

Recommended Posts

 

Power has been restored after 13 hours.

 

"A utility worker doing maintenance near Yuma, Ariz., triggered a massive blackout that jammed roads, closed schools and businesses, grounded planes and left more than 4 million people across a large swath of Southern California and Mexico without power."

My family(Mom, sister and brother in law)were directly effected by this.:eek: Thankfully they got back power early this morning (9/9/11)as the last customers in the dark came back online by 6am(9am NY/Eastern)time.

Good job by the local folks of SD and not (as far as reports go)doing stupid things like looting. i.e stealing a flat screen HDTV at a local best buy, etc.

 

 

Not just all of San Diego County(including City of SD) was effected but also Tijuinja in Mexico's State of Baja Calif. which shares the same grid and also Western Arizona including Yuma went dark.

 

As far as this worker doing this, while the story is not impossible(something out of page of Homer Simpson lol)IMO it's a 'white lie.' IMO the real cause is an aging electric grid that was overloaded by a record breaking heat wave out there.:confused:
