I would point out that Whispers predicted an attack on NYC, however rather than a mass casualty attack, it would be something to cause mass chaos
(does the blackout qualify????)
Technically speaking, blackouts are very easily precipitated if you have a group of operators who are technically versed in the power grids. New
safeguards are in place to prevent such cascading outages, so an operator would have to know how to overcome those safeguards but it would still be
(Notice that even though safeguards are in place, it happened, and they are not talking about WHY it happened??? Like maybe someone DID overcome those
safeguards, and they dont want that to be public knowledge?)
Also, most North American power grids are isolated into regions, meaning that a cascading power outage would only affect one region and likely not
spread across the country. This would require that a large number of experienced operators nation wide, able to coordinate power outages in major
regions all at the same time.
Again, not easy, but possible.
