Big Power Outage In NYC And Other Northeast Cities
from the who-needs-power? dept
Not quite sure what's going on, but stories filtering in that New York City and a number of other northeast cities have all completely lost power. Airports have been shut down, people are stuck in elevators. Everyone below ground in NYC subways are stuck. Lots of general confusion at this point, and no one seems to know what's going on. More as info comes out. Update: CNN is reporting that it was due to a natural occurrence that happened at the Niagara Mohawk power grid, and cascaded over causing the massive shut down. It may take some time to get back going again. The videos coming out of NY showing mobs of people wandering through the streets (peacefully) are fascinating. Update 2 CNN now has the story on their website, which I imagine they'll keep updating as necessary.
