BLACKOUT! POWER OUTAGES REPORTED IN LA, NEW YORK, AND SAN FRANCISCO
A strange occurrence happened in Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco on Friday morning just as commuters were traveling to work in the morning and were left stranded. The power went out in all three cities at the same time; however, at the moment there isn’t any evidence that it was anything more than pure coincidence.
NEW YORK LOST POWER FRIDAY MORNING 7.20AM
The first of the power outages occurred in New York at 7.20am when power abruptly went down at 7th Avenue and 53rd Street subway station. Of course, this sent a shockwave of delays into the remainder of the subway system. The generators were out until 11.30am, but it left delays until the afternoon on the subways. The cause of the power outage has yet to be determined by MTA and Con Ed.
Significant delays had been reported throughout the entire subway system for the morning commute, with some people left stranded on dark subway cars which had stopped between stations. While there wasn’t a definite reason given, Andrew Cuomo, the New York Governor, said that the incident was down to equipment failure at Con Edison.
LOS ANGELES LOST POWER CAUSES OUTRAGE
On the same morning, power was lost at the Los Angeles Airport along with several other regions in the city, with many frustrated travelers taking to social media to comment and complain.
The power outage was said to have caused a great deal of inconvenience, but it wasn’t as widespread as the outage in San Francisco. While many people took to Twitter to vent their anger at being stranded, the official Twitter page of LAX didn’t say a thing. Later on, they did give out a Tweet telling people of traffic lights that were malfunctioning. Photos of people stood around in long lines quickly went around the internet.
So were the power outages in three main cities in the US down to coincidence or was there something strange going on?
