Massive Power Outage Hits California, Arizona and Mexico – Sep 8, 2011

First Reports:

A major power outage knocked out electricity to more than 5 million people in California, Arizona and Mexico on Thursday, bringing San Diego and Tijuana to a standstill and leaving people sweltering in the late-summer heat in the surrounding desert.

The outage extended from southern parts of Orange County to San Diego to Yuma, Arizona. It also affected cities south of the border across much of the state of northern Baja.

Power is slowly coming back online for some people in California, but most of the 5 million who lost electricity across the Southwest will remain in the dark through the night.

Two nuclear reactors were offline after losing electricity, but officials said there was no danger to the public or workers. FBI officials ruled out terrorism while power plant authorities struggled to find the cause of the outage that started shortly before 4 p.m. PDT.

San Diego bore the brunt of the blackout; most of the nation’s eighth-largest city was darkened. All outgoing flights from San Diego’s Lindbergh Field were grounded and police stations were using generators to accept emergency calls across the area.

The trolley system that shuttles thousands of commuters every day was shut down and freeways were clogged at rush hour. Trains were stopped in Los Angeles, an Amtrak spokesman said, because there was no power to run the lights, gates, bells and traffic control signals.

Police directed traffic at intersections where signals stopped working.
Mexican television reported that power was out in Baja California as far south as Ensenada.

  3. I can’t believe the arrogance of the one who’s responsible for the utility worker story! We’re not all on drugs yet! If utility workers can shut down whole grids the people responsible for creating the systems would have a faulty system that would be vulnerable to national security. If it’s somehow true, we have the brain dead running the show ,don’t we?

  4. Prince Charles warns of ‘sixth extinction event’

    Now this is a slight hint guys or is it just a coincidence that he uses this speech?

  5. The only ‘extinction event’ Prince Charles is capable of speaking about is the one where he gave the nod to have his wife, Diana snuffed out.
    That aside, Im betting the call has already gone out to all those lucky enough to be on the guest list for those elite bunker parties.
    Maybe a few people will continue to drop hints but until someone in the know comes out and makes it clear what TPTB have in store for us, we’re left guessing and looking for the missing pieces of the puzzle.

  6. In revalation it says that those rich people hiding in the moutanins will not survive. That the mountains will crash down on those rich living in the caves. I believe only the chosen ones and true believers will be saved, if not our bodys then definently our souls.

    • Well DEAR Maria….tHE BOOK of.Revelation 6 v12 says “And I saw the Lamb (Jesus)break open the sixth seal. There was a violent earthquake and the sun became black like coarse black cloth, and the moon turned completely red like blood.
      v13.The stars fell down to the earth, like unripe figs falling from the tree when a strong wind shakes it.
      v14.The sky disappeared like a scroll being rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved from its place.
      v15.Then the kings of the earth, the rulers and the military chiefs, the rich and the powerful and all other men, slave and free, hid themselves in caves (tunnels/bunkers ??) and under rocks on the mountains .
      v16.They called out to the mountains and to the rocks,”Fall on us and hide us from the eyes of THE ONE WHO sits on the throne and from the ANGER of the LAMB.
      V17.THE TERRIBLE DAY OF THIER ANGER IS HERE, AND WHO CAN STAND AGAINST IT ?”” .

      So MARIA, its says…. not just the RICH but the Whole array of “BAKED BUNS” on the tray.

  7. Unfortunately Maria, I my self no longer put a lot of stock in a bible that has been re-written and re-translated so many times by the victors of conquests and corrupt monarchies.
    Im sure enough of the important ones that ARENT under the mountains, such as those beneath the denver air port willl survive and come back out to make things miserable as they attempt to re-dominate after the catastrophies.
    Remember, Each major nation has Well over a 100 large bunkers and a few super city bunkers each.

  9. I have faith in god that he will save those he wants. And if he dosent save thier bodies, then definently thier souls. And His wrath will be great and he is all knowing and powerful, so if he wants those in the caves to perish, than it shall be. He controls everything. And not for nothing when nibiru comes and is close enough people dont know for sure the conciquences of nibiru, it may be so bad as all life forms on earth will be destroyed. It is the time of rebirth and earth purification, and to get rid of the evil on the earth. I have faith God wont let his people die and let those who are meant to be punished live. I believe He will save those that are believers and worthy.

  10. I was in this blackout. It sucked! It was like 97 degrees out and I couldn’t run my air conditioner. What really sucks is that my family has solar power, but my grandfather would not let us switch to full solar power, so we had to suffer with everyone else.
