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

CNN now saying a "SPECIFIC CREDIBLE THREAT", but unconfirmed? WTF???

I find it eerie that the power is out for such a huge area where our Pacific fleet is located, as well as Pendelton, Mir Mar, etc.

Listening to the live broadcast. They have no indications that this is a result of terrorism but that is simply because they don't know what is wrong with the line that went out.

They are connecting to other power plants among other companies to help restore power faster.

I'm in Oceanside, Ca *north San Diego county* and the power is out everywhere around here. The local news is reporting that the power went out in parts of Ensenada, Mexico, parts of LA county are also out. its either the heat or some crazy ass solar activity.

There is a hub in central arizona that is a 'switch yard' has a line that had the "first problem" which is what powered all the areas out. They don't know if there was any sort of cascading failure yet. Just that this particular line is where the problem started.
