It is more than that, 3 major cities are affected. New York City, LA and SF. link
Not sure of restore status or adverse impacts at this time for any locations, if any.
ND has been reporting on the threat to America from EMP, the electromagnetic pulse from a nuclear explosion high in the sky, since early in the 2000s when former CIA chief James Wooley, former Defense Department staffer F. Michael Maloof and former Congressional EMP Commission member Dr. Peter Vincent Pry were sounding the alarm.
Meanwhile, NJ Transit had extensive problems of its own Friday. The Raritan Valley line saw delays of up to an hour at one point because of an Amtrak switch problem near Newark. The switch problem also delayed Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast Line and MidTown Direct trains between Newark and New York.

I was about to post this -- surprised no one on here had gotten to it sooner. I am unsure on the exact numbers but I've read that 95,000 were without power in SF and that the outages all coincided with one another; but no correlation has been identified as of yet. I find it highly suspicious that a number of major cities grids go down around the same time.
