Massive power outages hit Northeast, Midwest
« on: August 14, 2003, 01:57:13 PM »

NEW YORK -- A power outage has struck major areas of the Northeast and Midwest, as well as cities in Canada.

The outage struck much of the New York metropolitan area, from Long Island to Westchester County north of the city.

Widespread power outages are also being reported in Detroit, Cleveland and Toledo, as well as in Toronto, Ottawa and throughout Ontario.

CNN reported that power was out at all three major airports in the New York area and that the Long Island Railroad was shut down. All subway trains ground to a halt, and thousands of passengers were stuck in pitch-dark tunnels.

According to CNN reporters, throngs of people were swarming into the streets of New York City. Some were trapped in elevators.

New York's City Hall was operating on a backup generator.

An official with the Office for Emergency Management said, "We have no idea how extensive it is."

CNN aired a report that the Niagra-Mohawk power grid had become overloaded and failed, apparently from physical causes.

Watch, just like back in the 60's when there was a massive power outage, people got bored so they went into their rooms with their boyfirends and girlfriend, did the nasty, and had a boost in population 9 months after. 8)

This is great.  I get a long-weekend outta this (and still get paid).

Driving around in the city with no street lights and traffic lights at night is quite different.  

I was taking a nap when it went down so it didn't affect me like the people stuck in the subway or in an elavator.  That would suck to be them.
