Many areas of Venezuela are now 24 hours without electricity m. The Guri hydroelectric power station broke down 24 hours ago. Since then only a small part of Venezuela has had access to electricity

Wouldn’t surprise me if they weren’t already there ready to kick ass and take names. If this shit happened in LA, NYC, Miami and Chicago simultaneously, heads would roll.

This is unreal. And CNN and MSNBC are playing dumb with us and refusing to cover this. Smh.

That would create new "ISIS", commie revolutionaries would become a guerrilla force that would plunge country into civil war.

The operation of exploiting resources most likely wouldn't be endangered. They could even guard refineries with US military but the country itself would stay in same stagnation. Jungle and countryside areas controlled by paramilitaries. In environment like that a country can't prosper. What would be worse is that their resources would be robbed by foreigners.

The following morning, the power cut continues. 13 hours now and counting. Hospitals in darkness and food rotting in switched-off fridges. Classes suspended and most of the country off work. Incredible situation. #SinLuz

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 70419211


What is the cause of the outage?...
 Quoting: King Triad


Supposedly the failure of the Simon Bolivar hydroelectric power station at the Guri Dam. The regime is claiming it was sabotage.

I don't know if that dam is THAT crucial to supplying almost the entire country or if it caused a cascading failure of everything else on the grid.

Its cause you create the outside enemy to justify your own policies. Your adversaries are doing it as well. This latest habit of American and Korean fatty meetings are a good way to go. Show them you mean no harm, buy the fatty out, he's in love with the West, that's a leverage. Sooth his soul. Once North Koreans lose outside enemy they will start to look what's wrong with their country and improve it.

"This is unprecedented in the world. I have worked with electrical systems in 44 countries and there have been major blackouts, but that this is an almost total blackout of a country and that it extends the hours that have evidence that the Venezuelan electrical system is very helpless and that the deterioration that exists it is profound in him, "he said during an exclusive interview for El Nacional.

Someone from either American or Israeli DOD got into the PLC controllers on the twelve gigawatt hydroelectric Guri dam. They attacked the systems that regulated water flow through the valves on the dam that send the water to the turbines. This is precisely the type of attack Stuxnet is supposed to be made for. They opened the valves all the way. They (or whatever virus they planted, probably Stuxnet) then told the engineers, via the readouts, that the water flows and turbine speeds were normal. With an enormous amount of pressure from the dam, the turbines managed to push ahead of phase on the rest of Venezuela's grid, got into an enormous tug-of-war with power stations elsewhere (after viruses also turned the protection off) and blew everything up, tripping a nationwide blackout with long term severe damage.
We just got to see what Stuxnet could do to the world's third largest power plant. Several Venezuelans managed to tweet out that the turbines at Guri went over frequency, those tweets have now been expunged. Only willful sabotage could have done that.

It is virtually assured America did this, to a point where there is no plausible deniability especially after Pompeo's tweet, see the main report in the window below.

Most likely, trolls are going to say Venezuela's grid was crap. That's a lie, I looked into this, and it was in fact among the most modern grids in the world, RIPE for virus attacks, Guri is predominantly a 2010 dated facility after upgrades, that was initially put online in the late 80's (which by itself would not be old by power generating standards). There's nothing of significance in the U.S. that new and that updated. The stories about Venezuela having crap are bold faced lies fronted for propaganda.

I am inclined to agree with this, as I saw other reports saying that the turbines suddenly went way above in frequency. However, why is one single hydro station enough to take the whole entire country out?
