yep, power will probably go out. power goes out every time the wind blows the wrong way. you would think someone over there that learned how to put a man on the moon or invented the inch wide tv could come up with a better way to distribute power other than having them hanging in the wind. guess not. cell phone that can bounce off a satellite in orbit and bounce back to anyone on the entire planet? doable. learning how to put electric lines underground? impossible.
