upgraded to ALERT.

Officials don't know the cause, no explanation right now. Much of the city has gone power dark.

Uh oh.

LA is bad enough without a blackout. If it doesn't get repared before nightfall, there will be a riot, almost certainly.

It's not a sweltering day there either, it's pleasant, in the mid seventies.

I don't forsee any problems unless the power is not restored come nightfall. That's when people take advantage of the darkness to start crime sprees. Happens in most metropolitan areas when the lights go out at night.

If it's a terrorist attack, we should know that as soon as the outage is inspected. Probably inside an hour.

Good find.

Might be the geomagnetic storm we're havin right now, could have affected the grid out there, or it could just be a overload, which has happened it CA a number of times.

LOS ANGELES - A major portion of Los Angeles lost power Monday afternoon. Outages were reported from downtown to the San Fernando Valley.

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power did not immediately have an explanation for what happened.


No information on what happened yet.
Hopefully it's nothing major.

I can't even imagine how they're dealing with the traffic issues....As if it isn't bad enough already there....Yikes...

I wonder if this will be anything like the New York black out....

According to CNN (TV), it appears to just be SOME traffic lights affected.

It could be various reasons but what matters at the moment is what to do this instant ... this shouldn't be another terrible incident like the Katrina aftermath where citizens were made to fend for themselves.

Wasn't it yesterday or the day before that Al'Qaeda said they would attack LA and Melbourne? It's probably just co-incidence, but maybe not?

Dj and Nerdling are the official ATS fear mongers.


How did we get from almost complete blackout to a few traffic lights?


Peace

Apparently the power cut out after two surges were detected.

Traffic lights are out, but so are office towers, according to ABC anyway. Large portions of the city without power is the headline running, if I remember correctly.

CNN is leaving a bad taste in my mouth these days, sour-like, gamey even, tastes like bias and flippancy.

Get Michael Brown on the phone, he could help with this...oh wait, he's fired. Who's the next available person...ah, Captain Planet. He could have prevented all this from happening...because afterall he's going to take pollution down to zero.

I'm thinking that if it is related to the AQ threats that this is more likely to be a deversion then the actual attack. Nothing much spectacular about a brownout.

According to tha LA Sports radio show I'm listening to right now, it's much more than that. Alot of neighborhoods, schools, and the radio station that is broadcasting (they're running on their generator for now) are out.

I really hope this isn't the start of another series of rolling power failures in California like happened a few years ago. It has been a good summer for them, it's odd it should happen so late and during a moderate day. At least they've got sunlight for quite a while, so things shouldn't be TOO hectic. Still, that many cars, that many people, that much area...

EDIT: I don't know about you guys, but CP has always been my hero, maybe now he can be ours.
