Default Southwest Power Outage

Another good reason to have emergency supplies and plans on hand:

Power outage hits up to 5M in US Southwest, Mexico *|

I am amazed that officials are saying a worker switching out one piece of equipment caused such a big mess. I don't envy anyone stuck in the heat without power.

The Sun had a Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) the other day.

They do not want to admit that the grid is that weak! Generator indeed! -- News and information about meteor showers, solar flares, auroras, and near-Earth asteroids

San Diego utility officials said they are trying to figure out what caused a massive power outage affecting large parts of region.

When the news is saying: "A 500-kilovolt electric transmission line near Yuma, Arizona, tripped off, probably because of a worker’s activity, Arizona Public Service, one of the line’s owners, said in an e- mailed statement yesterday."
