don't want to alarm anyone
but about 20 mins ago had
2 fighter jets scrambled
and went airborne.

10 mins later another 2 scrambled
and went airborne.

all heading off at high rate of speed.

Don't think it's an EMP as that ferry wouldn't be working.

Just a thought, but aren't power outages usually pretty sudden?

Huge Power outage in San Diego. Can't make or receive calls. Cannot browse the internet for info. Sirens everywhere. Someone give me details"

It must be spooky to lose power, cell, AND internet. Being cut off with no knowliedge of what is happening is somehow worse than knowing

EMP from China? It would zap the power for sure. Pacific Navy Fleet ships (not the enema kind) are in San Diego. This is not looking good. Any DEFCON warnings?

RT @LydiaCornell: Just heard a major explosion and all of san diego is blacked out... stores, street lights…
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1267719


It's still daytime in San Diego. How could you tell if street lights are out?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1540576

a few street lights are on - in La Jolla to get on the freeway at Nobel Dr. they were working but that was the only one I saw.

Going for sushi - hope they are open. Maybe they want to use up the fish before it goes bad...

agreed about the media. I think EMP. But then again, I ALWAYS think EMP. If it is not happening now, it will be later. We're gonna get hit.

A spot beam EMP strike from a satellite, or unmanned UAV, could pinpoint a specific power generating facility. Any word on those nuclear power plants in SoCal?

If it were an EMP attack your internet wouldn't be working.

If it were aliens you would see them all over.

If it were an impending nuclear attack there would be air raid sirens, and the entire naval fleet would be pulling out to sea already.

Some people just have too much imagination I swear.
