Major power outage cripples Munich, Germany
This is it people. A small hint at what may be in store for us.

A major power outage has struck the 1.2 million city of Munich in Germany about 1 hour ago. Traffic lights went out, people are stuck in elevators and subways...still ongoing...

No English source so far...

Yep, true. Hopefully the outage spreads , I have not much appetite for work at the moment (but I doubt it, munich Stadtwerke are pretty good at fixing).

I just hear on the radio that the reason maybe a transformer blowout...CME hit?

 Quoting: Nibibu Obungo


I doubt it. While a CME certainly can do damage it would not occure at only one transformer, a larger area should be affected then I guess, like having transformers blow all over the country. Also with a CME powerfull enough to blow a transformer other devices susceptible to damage should get trouble. But I'm no expert on CME's, so it's just saying.

Yeah, just got calls from colleagues that they are stuck at traffic (car, S-Bahn). People in lifts are stuck as well. Cellphone net still seems to work from what I can tell.

About fucking time. We need more power outages. Power out = power out and free people. Of course this is after the carnage and chaos. But who the fuck cares we live in carnage and chaos but it is regulated. Power out removes the regulators.

Not really...people tweeting they are still stuck in subways, power came back in some parts, then off again..traffic lights still seem to be out...nice timing here: power went out at 7 AM here, just in time for the rush hour.

I spotted northern light in eastern Canada yesterday. It looked like a pretty huge ring, greenish color. It light enough as to believe the Sun was rising to the west

Does anyone know why this happened? Is foul play suspected or was this due to an electrical grid problem?

The only thing for sure is that there has been an explosion at a transformer station. No word on why this happend though...

My guess is still that it is somehow connected to the latest CMEs

Some people are stupid, phasing nukes out was Germany's best decision in a long time. It will help them ride out the Euro crash without too much pain as well.

Re: Major power outage cripples Munich, Germany
power is back on for most of the city.
btw, it was not the whole city, just some parts.
and only for about 1hour.

some problem at a transformer station , not that bad.
no way this was caused by CME or anything else.

Re: Major power outage cripples Munich, Germany
what happened (i just repeat what someone living near the transformer station said):

"heard something like thunder, looked at the transformer station, there was some white smoke coming out of it, then the traffic lights went out."
