There is another thread titled power outages I think that has lots of links in it. Pretty freaky actually, seems to be going on all over the place!

Rumors are circulating at an alternative conspiracy website that contacts within Con Edison in NY say they have been seeing anomalies in the power grid reported all over the US and fear that the whole grid may be on the verge of failure. (If interested in this source google "JUST received a disturbing CALL, GRID FAILURE!").

The same contacts at Con Edison supposedly also said that the problems with the grid are growing exponentially and from what they figure it is possible that between 60% and 100% of all electrical power could go out in the US as soon as 1 or 2 a m. Eastern Standard Time May 16th (less than one and a half hours from now).

Also, supposedly something called ground induced current is leading to the power failures in NY, numerous places across the nation, and across the globe that are being reported across Twitter and a few news outlets.

The cause of the ground induced current is thought to be a geomagnetic sudden impulse (K=4 warning index rating) that began on May 15th and is expected to last until late on May 16th.

Geomagnetically induced currents (GIC) that affect the normal operation of long electrical conductor systems are a manifestation at ground level of space weather. During space weather events (such as geomagnetic storms) electric currents in the magnetosphere and ionosphere experience large variations which manifest also in the Earth's magnetic field. These variations induce currents (GICs) in conductors that are operated on the surface of Earth. Electric transmission grids and buried pipelines are common examples of such conductor systems. GICs can cause problems such as increased corrosion of pipeline steel and damaged high-voltage power transformers.

Damage to high-voltage power transformers has been happening with increased magnitude and frequency since the "transformer event" happened in the Dallas-Fort Worth area last Tuesday night (video linked below).

A more recent well publicized "transformer event" also occurred in Wisconsin.

In fact, transformers have been blowing all over the U.S. for the past 5 days, notably in TX, WI, NY, NJ, IA, and FL, etc.

Also, earlier this evening unusual electrical activity in the form of very frequent lightning that was accompanied by no storm was filmed and the video placed on YouTube. The video is linked below. This unusual lightning phenomenon may also be caused by what is causing the transformers to blow.

This is all interesting food for thought...

Here's the first video that was supposed to embed in the previous post but did not.

This is kind of scary! Thanks for the info, I think I will go and do some digging and see what else I can learn about this! Weird times for sure!
