Re: Massive power outage in San Diego/Orange County/Tijuana/Parts of AZ
Some could be without power until Saturday

An unprecendented power outage led to controlled chaos Thursday throughout San Diego County and surrounding areas as 1.4 million residents coped with the sudden loss of electricity, and officials say power will be restored in waves through Saturday.

The outage began at 3:38 p.m. after a 500-kilovolt high-voltage line from Arizona to California failed, triggering a cascade of events that then knocked the San Onofre nuclear power plant offline. Those are the two major power sources for the region.

Besides the county, affected customers reside in eastern Arizona, Baja California and southern Orange County. The power failure led to school and business closures, suspended water service in some areas, flight cancellations, blacked-out traffic lights, silent radio stations and trapped elevator passengers. Public schools throughout the county and several high-education institutions will be closed Friday...

Why is a simple power outage controlled chaos in S. California, but a much longer power outage coming from a hurricane and torrential rains does not cause chaos on the east coast?

Is it cultural?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1456495


Well those rains are common and predicted. You expect them to happen.

These power outages are sudden and people just don't know what's going on.

I mean if you see a huge storm and the power goes out, ok the storm caused it.

imagine you're at work and the power just completely goes out for no apparent reason. Phone lines are dead you can't get a hold of anyone. Its confusion and chaos, people over there probably thought "terrorism, aliens, nuclear explosion" you really just don't know what hit you.

And ill chime in and say that its very hard to believe one person randomly knocked over a chord and shut down power for half the west coast.


Absolutely. When someone cut the line INTENTIONALLY in the Bay Area and it COMPLETELY cut off Santa Cruz County and other ares from the rest of central California, it was FREAKY.

The power went out on a beautiful sunny day. There was NO reason for the power to go out. It was not a heat wave. There was ZERO communication in or out of our area with the rest of the world.

It caused alot of concern and confusion. And we are a small town area with a sliver of freeway running through it. We are not a large metropolitan area like the area affected.

Re: Massive power outage in San Diego/Orange County/Tijuana/Parts of AZ
Just reported on local LA KCAL Channel 9 news that the cause was an employee moving equipment...WTF????

Really, that seems like a load of BS! What about the explosion reported by people near the Salton Sea? I doubt some dumb bonehead would accidentally move equipment on one of the hotter days of the year and it would take out the entire power grid extending into AZ and Mexico!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1071143


Our best guess on page 4 of this other thread:

Thread: Breaking -New York and DC Going Under HOMELAND SECURITY ALERT & Multi City Multi State Sudden Power Outage (Page 4)

...is that the massive power outage was initiated when there was a geothermal explosion in/near the Salton Sea.

There were multiple witnesses who heard a very loud explosion in that location.

The idea is that the geothermal explosion was so hot that the heat charged the grid up and blew it.

The explosion came from what channel 3 (multiple viewers) said was the abandoned area near the Salton Sea that is on this video.



This area is the southern tip of the San Andreas fault in the salton Seismic Zone, as well as the Cerro Prieto Geothermal area and the Brawley Seismic Zone and geothermal area.

 Quoting: Biochemky


Isn't the Salton Sea where Dutch was saying there were plumes? Is there a dormant volcano there?
 Quoting: The Chosen One


Regarding Dutch and the plumes. Yes, I believe so. That is what I thought too.

And, yes, there is a not so dormant volcano there.

The Salton Sea geothermal field lies in the Salton Trough, the landward extension of the Gulf of California, an area of active crustal spreading.

The Salton Buttes volcanoes lie within the Salton Sea geothermal field.

[link to vulcan.wr.usgs.gov]

Here's Dutch's "plume" video that involves an area near the Salton Sea:
