I'm about 250 miles NE of Yuma. No problems up here.

Here's a link to some helpful info. that might help pinpoint the problem:


en.wikipedia.org...

According to the article, Yuma to San Diego is on Path 46, and this includes many tranformers, the Palo Vede Nuclear Plant and the Hoover Dam.

It could be any of these, a combination of all, or something else entirely.

I have to say though, this is a bad time of the year for the power to go out down there.

This sucks. I had to leave work early because of the power outage. My cell phone didn't work for a while and now it does. All the roads and freeways are grid locked. I'm in escondido just north of san diego. Hopefully things improve. I'm able to access the internet ATS with my droid.

I just found this from the LA Times:




San Diego utility officials said they are trying to figure out what caused a massive power outage affecting large parts of region. "We understand power is out, we are working on the cause and solution. We do not have a restoration time yet," San Diego Gas and Electric said in a statement on its Twitter feed. Across San Diego, businesses are closed, traffic is snarled and the trolley system is down. San Diego International Airport was on backup generators. There were reports that power was also out in southern Orange County, Imperial County, Tijuana, Arizona and Palm Springs. The city of San Diego has set up its emergency operations center. Sheriff's officials told Fox 5 San Diego that many of its substations were without power. Utility officials are trying to figure out what cause the outrage.

Here's another source that can keep people udated if you're down there:

twitter.com...#!/APSOutageCenter

On a side note, there is a big storm system coming down from the Gulf of Alaska that's supposed to be in the SW Sat. Don't know if that has anything to do with this though.




Isn't the largest Naval base in the world in San Diego?

Also this news report:

APS: 56,000 customers without power




PHOENIX - There are reports of a widespread power outage across parts of the southwest United States. Arizona Public Service is saying approximately 56,000 customers in Yuma are without power. Spokesman Damon Gross said the outage in Yuma and surrounding communities started around 3:40 p.m. According to a tweet sent out around 4:10 p.m. parts of Southern California are also impacted. San Diego TV stations are reporting outages throughout that area also. 10News.com is reporting San Diego Gas and Electric crews are trying to determine the cause of an outage that has affected various cities around the county, "from the South Bay to downtown, to cities in the North County and into areas as far east as El Centro." APS says the cause of the outage is unknown and restoration efforts are under way. Stay with ABC15.com for updates. Read more: www.abc15.com...

Something to do with this 'threat' ?

Terrible that, not having power.

Imagine what people would do before its discovery.

The world probably would have ended.

Imagine that, all the EM stress in the environment is lifted. Don't you feel the difference in the buildings?

OMG wait, no TV? PANIC!!!!!

East-Phoenix/Scottsdale and we have power here.

Local news is saying the utility, APS, is pretty much clueless as to the cause.
