This is the Philippines.
Very little attention is paid to this phenomenon.
I don't know if it's deliberate.
Also, south China Sea has become heavily militarized. Naval ships from different countries patrol our part of the seas. They didn't stop China building military installations there. Something's afoot.
The power was out for under a minute and was probably very localized to a very small area.
When it came to a stop, the city lost power. I'm not entirely sure if the cars died too but we stopped.
Maybe you're right about the militarization...
China may have caught up with the USA financially but I remember a very impressed Chinese official said a couple years ago the US military was decades ahead of them.
Now China is acting like it's the 500lb gorilla all of a sudden.
