As reported by DRUDGE REPORT. 9-12-05 1:15pm AZ time

Anyone know any more?

ETA :

I'm listing to the streaming audio from KFI 640 out of Los Angeles. They say its the San Fernando Valley.

The Electric Company has said they have no idea why its out?

Then one of the KFI reporters said they found out that "A" cable was cut at a Distribution plant.?????

I'm not sure why I found that funny.......maybe because it was so unexpected.

You're optimistic, I wouldnt give em that long.

I'm about an hour from L.A. and the lights have always been on. Not so much as a flicker... but i'll load up some extra M1A mags just in case.
Link Posted: 9/12/2005 12:29:59 PM EDT
Looks like the news channels are just having a spaz.

Several areas got power back immediately... it is acting like a very large brownout. A coordinated attack on infrastructure, power in particular, would be quite obvious.

No such thing when it comes to stuff like this.

I freely admit I sometimes post after a power outage talking about said outage, but it's usually in order to talk about what ever emergency gear I got to use, so if this next question is a bit hypocritical so be it.

Why is this national news?
they did a "breaking news" thing on local the talk/news station

I think just because of the AL Quada threat to LA but I'm not certain.

CBS Radio news just said their LA city inside source said a wire was accidentally cut at a distribution node

Hate to burst your bubbles but it's mostly in upper middle class white areas. Doubt we will see any looting.

Big money is on a cable cutting of some kind out in the valley.

Traffic is not moving in a lot of areas on surface streets.

I'm over in north Orange County and we aren't having any problems over here.

We need to start a poll, W's fault, Brown's Fault, AQ's fault, the Governator's fault, Al Frankens' Fault, Mayor Nagins fault?

I'm in the San Gabriel Valley, 10 miles east of Los Angeles, my electricity provider is So. Calif. Edison which at the moment is unaffected. But a few days ago, I lost power at my house due to a falling tree branch that that wiped out an electrical transformer a 2000(0800PM), power wasn't restored until 0200(2AM).

I wonder if they will declare a "state of emergency" and begin to disarm the populace.

I take offense to the term 'brown outs.'

It affiliates people of minority status with an annoying inconvenience.

Of course, it doesn't bother me that they call blizzards and typo correcting fluid "white-out".

Power outages hit Los Angeles

Monday, September 12, 2005; Posted: 4:47 p.m. EDT (20:47 GMT)


LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- A large portion of Los Angeles was hit with a blackout Monday afternoon.

The city was investigating the cause and extent of the outage. But Sgt. Catherine Plows, a police spokeswoman, said terrorism was not suspected.

Electrical power was knocked out shortly before 1 p.m. after two power surges, and traffic was snarled at intersections throughout the city when stop lights went dark. The lights also went out at downtown high-rises.

The Police Department went on "full tactical alert," meaning no officers were allowed to leave duty.

The blackout came a day after ABC aired a videotape of a purported al Qaeda member making terrorist threats against Los Angeles and Melbourne, Australia, on the fourth anniversary of the September 11 attacks. (Full story)

Heavy usage on hot days can lead to blackouts. But the weather in Los Angeles was not unusually hot Monday.

That bothers me too. Why can't you use brown gas in them? Not good enough for you? Saying that white gas is the only one productive enough?

Ban all expressions containing colors.

Large Portion of Los Angeles Loses Power

By LAURA WIDES
The Associated Press
Monday, September 12, 2005; 5:03 PM

LOS ANGELES -- A blackout hit a large portion of the Los Angeles area Monday afternoon, snarling traffic at intersections and trapping people in elevators.

The city was investigating the cause of the outage. But Sgt. Catherine Plows, a police spokeswoman, said terrorism was not suspected.

The electricity was knocked out shortly before 1 p.m. after two power surges, and outages were reported from downtown to the coast and north into the San Fernando Valley, an area encompassing hundreds of thousands of residents and thousands of businesses.

Los Angeles International Airport lost power, but its emergency generator kicked in promptly, and no flights were affected, said Harold Johnson, an airport spokesman.

Downtown high-rises went dark, fire officials said they received reports of people stuck in elevators, and stoplights went out at intersections across the city. Some neighboring cities also were affected.

The Police Department went on "full tactical alert," meaning no officers were allowed to leave work when their shifts were over.

The blackout came a day after ABC aired a videotape of a purported al-Qaida member making terrorist threats against Los Angeles and Melbourne, Australia, on the fourth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Heavy power usage can lead to blackouts. But the weather in Los Angeles was not unsually hot Monday.
