This isn't going to be an easy fix either! Just the power required to 'charge' the distribution system is almost incomprehensible, let alone the in-rush which will then follow!!!

They're going to have to break the grid completely apart (if there is one to break apart), and then re-energize it block sector by sector.

I think we're going to find grid interconnections allowed overloads to be spread from origination point to corresponding connected power plants and sub station yards which shutdown power plants on safeties after sub stations performed disconnects.

Thats still not reason a large power source was suddenly removed from an interconnected grid though, its just the how as in cascade occurs.

Thats very correct! much like Niagara-Mohawk system in the 60's

Would be my guess.

How did you manage to guess that ?
What were your clues ?
Why Argentina AND Uruguay
Why not Venezuela ?


Too obvious? What's to gain from Venezuela? It would be obvious it was the US... but If due to recent news about the US attacking the Russian power grid we need to hear something that causes Russian FUD so people can look away from what's happening on this side, then it kind of makes sense in a way

It's all about first impressions, isn't it?

Well ,considering what was covertly named in an indirect way...
Do any other countries have that organization ?
(bold by me for reference)
(dang , that was too easy)


I bet lots of countries have their fake one, doing business in the name of

Redo your thinking using critical logic

Similar to my thoughts, but I suspect that our military intelligence efforts recently to hack the Russian power grid may have become "redirected".
Uncertain whether the target managed to reroute the incursion or if the Argentina plant is part of a large, as yet undocumented, private network.
Just seems too much coincidence with an acknowledged attack occurring at this time.

LMFAO!

Owner of the absolute truth of course.. We all are! LMFAO!

Your critical thinking is other people's "lack of knowledge"

But whatever, even the US has its own fake CIA operation going on, it's all fake anyways

Or there was a test by the US in these other countries and something went wrong and the kill switch got triggered somehow... Someone put the temp in control for a bit and stuff happened, regardless of all checks and smart people working on it...it happened nonetheless

Of course the evil Russian living under your bed caused it, what other explanation could there be?

Solar CME or EMP perhaps.

But more likely due to ring of fire activity as sthrn hemisphere rocked by 7.2 in Kermadec islands today.

I'm amazed that this power failure is so widespread and no-one seems to know why or how at present.


This is exactly what I would expect from such a large power failure. Communications will be down. Use to take up to a year to get a message around the would and back again in the good old days.

Glad to hear there is not some preplanned narrative already out.

Foul play is a prime candidate but why would the CIA choose those countries? Doesn't make much sense.

It is also possible it is a warning message being sent about power grids and their vulnerability. Kind of like a "you saw what just happened there, we did it, do you want that to happen to you?" message. Except the US's power grid is and has been vulnerable like this for ages, and the last time someone started talking about the specifics of the weaknesses of the US power grid they got shut up, and quickly at that.

It just so happens that there is a news story about people "probing" the US power grid yesterday
arstechnica.com...



The group, now dubbed Xenotime by Dragos, quickly gained international attention in 2017 when researchers from Dragos and the Mandiant division of security firm FireEye independently reported Xenotime had recently triggered a dangerous operational outage at a critical-infrastructure site in the Middle East

If you want to know just how vulnerable the electrical
energy grid is, this link might be a good place to start:energyskeptic.com....

By the way ,"word on the street" is that Tesla's wireless energy
transmission technology is soon to be revealed.
If true , interesting times to come for sure.

Just like Huawei has added chips to EVERYTHING built in China, The US, Israel, China, Russia have supplied infrastructure parts to every one else in the world that also have special chips built into them. Centrifuges in Iran, control computers in electric grids and nuclear power plants, fiber optic repeaters, etc. All have been infiltrated. Although many of these systems in some countries are decrepit - it seems very likely to me that they are ALL controllable, or at least "sniffable" by their makers...

It's possible that things like this are just an accident... but I think it's just as likely they are deliberate given all the systems are hacked...

Problems can cascade through a grid really fast.

Once there is a large imbalance (as in a generator or lines failure) interconnects may open due to too large a demand.

So weird. I had a dream last night about trying to find my wife during an apocalyptic spreading power outage event.

Weird.


Ahh I have them too.. I mean, well I'm not married, but she's out there, and during a wide spread power outage, no one will notice...

OT, wonder if we'll see just how people react to having no electricity.. the one thing we take for granted. Be interesting as an observer.

Obviously it's due to the poor management skills of their socialist governments... oh wait.

i know a few of these have been moved to various places around the world but it wouldn't be hard to have a nonstop flight of a bomber launch a few over various power plants and substations



it will be interesting to see if there were any houses or other equipment that was taken out near the power plants and sub stations.



ETA: in the champ video it even shows a power station going off line, something like CHAMP and cyber attacks would be a potent mix

Hope they get up and running again soon. That many people without power could cause a lot of stress... not to mention 'hunger/thirst' issues!

You forgot the most important thing... No Facebook.

People will not only die of dehydration and starve, but you'll see zombies everywhere, staring into a dark, dead screen.. And when they come across someone unaffected by this loss of social media, they will think they've got a secret supply..

Won't be brains they're after... it will be working wifi !!

Just a wild ass guess.
They seem to be involved in all of everything that happens. If not them, then one of the other 3 letter groups. I mean I could be wrong of course and this is all one big coincidence.
