That is mess up what you said. It was suppose to get 102 down there. The elderly might be suffering greatly from the heat and heat kills.

Hi BIAD!
Long time no see. Are you saying that it's a bit nipply over there across the pond?


I wonder if there will be any more areas affected this weekend? (9-11-11?)

I just checked out the portable generator availability in Pennsylvania. Due to the recent Hurricane, then tropical storm flooding issues.... Good luck finding an affordable one. Well, I got mine! Now I may have to rig blackout curtains in light of the previous posts that I've read here.

Orange County, everything fine here. It's true about the AC thing, temperatures were supposed to be 100+ for the LA County area, it's no surprise that we're having brownouts and blackouts.

I was in Washington Heights during the incredible heat waves for Manhattan a few years back when they had blackouts, same thing. Everyone running their damn Air Conditioner.

You would think Home Depot would be selling generators like crazy but with the power out, every store closed down. WIthout power they can't operate the cash register and none of the credit card machines work. Also none of the banks ATM's work due to power outage.

I did finally find a gas station open 30 miles north of me in Temecula.

This is a major outage, and if
it has nothing to do with the flare
since the CME has not arrived
then it could be what I just read
about 9/11 anniversary terror threat.
Not fearmongering just stating what
I just read and forgot which thread it
was on. Will try to find it.

So far power is on in N Indiana.


Hi fellow Hoosier!

I know it is not a laughing matter.... but your post made me laugh. Irony. You can't buy an existing, in-stock emergency generator....because the power is out.

Now those people will know that the time to buy a generator is before the power goes out.

I live in Las Vegas...No power outages here!

to be honest, I do not believe the story the media told this morning by the MSM about how the power outage was the cause of one person. I believe it was a drill.

The odd thing is no pictures of all the traffic stopped on the freeways, no TV news showing lines for ice at the stores or reporting on people stuck in elevators..why the secrecy? I watched several mainstream news channels yesterday and today and the most said was the ticker tape announcement on one of the power being out??

Maybe this whole thing IS to make people prepare as they have been told to do over and over by every agency. We had a weird power outage with no explanation on the north coast CA a week earlier but we get our power here from Oregon.

Yes....always with a grain of salt.

Maybe a video from suspicious observers channel will help explain. We have had a number of solar flares in the past week and supposedly having a geomagnetic storm that could disrupt power.



They never like to admit how vulnerable our power grid is to space weather but it is pretty sensitive.

Could be due to CME's and Solar Flare from the past few days. What's to come could be even more powerful!

It was a solar flare, a pretty rare one too, I mean it's not strong enough to take out the power around the world but it can do some damage, Im positive that GPS systems are failing too. Dont listen to the media they noe exactly wats going on, the government just doesn't want a worldwide panic attack,. I think the solar flare's name is X-2 flares (it can also disrupt radiowaves too) that why the cell phones didn't wor for awhile

It was my understanding that when the
power went out the CME from the
solar flare had not reached earth
yet.

Consider this a test to get better prepared for the future - when the power goes out for much longer than just "12 hours".

Power outages in the Southwest?

I live in North Hollywood, California. No power outages from the 5 to the 134 ventura. Everything was dandy.

I slept from 1am to 8am, so unless I was sleeping....

To add to the irony, we couldn't by gas for the darn generators either!!


This definatley was a reality check.

Maybe there was something to that X3 Class Solar Flare after All

Link spaceweather.com...

Quite possible. It was supposed to hit today, but it could have arrive earlier.

Good Post S&F
