Power Outages Coincide in LA, New York, and San Francisco! :o

https://www.inverse.com/article/30631-lax-sf-ny-power-outages

A series of subsequent power outages in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City left commuters stranded and traffic backed up on Friday morning. Although the outages occurred around the same time, there is as of yet no evidence that they were connected by anything more than coincidence. (Really??)

Power Outage in New York Friday

The first outage occurred at around 7:20 a.m. in New York, when the power went down at the 7th Avenue and 53rd Street subway station, which sent a shockwave of significant delays out from the hub and into the rest of the subway system. By 11:30 a.m. the city’s MTA confirmed that generators were running again in the station, although the New York subways were set to run delayed into the afternoon.

The MTA and Con Ed are still working to determine the cause of the outage.

Power Outage in Los Angeles Friday

Later in the morning, power outages were reported in Los Angeles International Airport, as well as in several other areas around the city.

The outage sent frustrated fliers onto Twitter to comment.

    Major power outage at LAX.... I had to trot every stair... God has a way of making me exercise....

    Power outage at #LAX B terminal. Just trying to get home :(

While the outage was an inconvenience, it does not appear to be as widespread as it’s San Francisco counterpart.

Power Outage in San Francisco Friday

By far the largest outage of the morning happened in San Francisco, where, as of 1 p.m., it appears that the majority of the city is out of commission.

The massive outage is closing BART stations, shutting down traffic signals, and affecting office buildings. Residents and workers in the area are calling it “totally surreal.”

The San Francisco outage appears to have begun sometime around noon Eastern, 9 a.m. local time, and there is no end presently in sight. Areas confirmed to be even more affected include the entirety of the financial district, parts of SoMa, Richmond, Nob Hill, and Pacific Heights.

    I can personally attest that power is out in inner Richmond, Nob hill and financial district. Will post if we get more updates.

Pacific Gas and Electric’s own outage map shows thousands affected and current estimates indicate that the outage is hitting up to 100,000 customers.

The outage came after a substation fire on Larkin Street, but officials have yet to officially cite the cause of the outage. Sources did tell Inverse that PGE is working to restore power to the city by 12:30 p.m. local time at the earliest.

Total Chaos: Cyber Attack Fears As MULTIPLE CITIES HIT With Simultaneous Power Grid Failures: Shockwave Of Delays In San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York

http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/total-chaos-cyber-attack-fears-as-multiple-cities-hit-with-simultaneous-power-grid-failures-shockwave-of-delays-in-san-francisco-los-angeles-new-york_04212017

The U.S. power grid appears to have been hit with multiple power outages affecting San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles.

Officials report that business, traffic and day-to-day life has come to a standstill in San Francisco, reportedly the worst hit of the three major cities currently experiencing outages.

Power companies in all three regions have yet to elaborate on the cause, though a fire at a substation was the original reason given by San Francisco officials.

A series of subsequent power outages in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City left commuters stranded and traffic backed up on Friday morning. Although the outages occurred around the same time, there is as of yet no evidence that they were connected by anything more than coincidence.

The first outage occurred at around 7:20 a.m. in New York, when the power went down at the 7th Avenue and 53rd Street subway station, which sent a shockwave of significant delays out from the hub and into the rest of the subway system. By 11:30 a.m. the city’s MTA confirmed that generators were running again in the station, although the New York subways were set to run delayed into the afternoon.

Later in the morning, power outages were reported in Los Angeles International Airport, as well as in several other areas around the city.

As we have previously reported, the entire national power grid has been mapped by adversaries of the United States and it is believed that sleep trojans or malware may exist within the computer systems that maintain the grid.

In a 2016 report it was noted that our entire way of life has been left vulnerable to saboteurs who could cause cascading blackouts across the United States for days or weeks at a time:

Consider, for a moment, how drastically your life would change without the continuous flow of energy the grid delivers. While manageable during a short-term disaster, losing access to the following critical elements of our just-in-time society would wreak havoc on the system.

    Challenges or shut downs of business commerce
    Breakdown of our basic infrastructure: communications, mass transportation, supply chains
    Inability to access money via atm machines
    Payroll service interruptions
    Interruptions in public facilities – schools, workplaces may close, and public gatherings.
    Inability to have access to clean drinking water

Some great “Urban Survial” tips in this article!

How Well You Can Survive, Amidst Looting, Violence And The Desperation Of The Under- Or Completely Unprepared, Will Depend On Your Own Good Sense And Your Ability To Prepare Ahead Of Time.

http://concerneduspatriots.com/tips-prepare-urban-survival-bugging/

Whether you’re unsure of how to plan for a bug out situation because you don’t know where you would bug out to, or you simply prefer the idea of battening down the hatches in your current dwelling to weather whatever catastrophe may strike, urban survival and bugging in are two important topics that are quite worthy of consideration. Most people now live in developed suburban and urban areas rather than out in the countryside, so in the event of an emergency, many people are going to find themselves trying to survive in the concrete jungle.

How well you can survive, amidst looting, violence and the desperation of the under- or completely unprepared, will depend on your own good sense and your ability to prepare ahead of time. Aside from stocking up on basic supplies like food and water, you don’t have to spend a fortune to prepare yourself for urban survival or bugging in, either.

First and foremost, one of the most important things to consider is self-defense for yourself and your loved ones. If an emergency crops up or a disaster strikes, law enforcement will likely be overwhelmed or possibly disbanded entirely, leaving civilians vulnerable to criminals. Those who are clearly well prepared become immediate targets of the unprepared.

To mitigate your risk of being targeted there are some very good things you can do

Identify local resources ahead of time, including water alternative water sources for if / when the taps run dry.

Avoid detection by boarding over the windows, keeping lights off at night

Secure your home or dwelling as well as you can, without being too obvious and drawing attention from the exterior.

Whenever possible, try to cultivate a closer and more unified community amongst your neighbors ahead of time.

Maintain an unattractive appearance to your house

Finally, a well-packed urban survival bag (also sometimes called a get home bag) can be invaluable in case of an emergency that strikes while you’re away from home. Packed with slightly different supplies than a standard bug out bag, an urban survival bag is designed to help you survive an emergency long enough to travel from your current location to your home or to another suitable location you intend to bug out from.

Former Ambassador Warns 'The Day Of Reckoning Could Come Sooner Than Anyone Thinks'

-  Council On Foreign Relations Study May Indicate A 'False Flag Grid Down Scenario' Is On The Horizon

http://allnewspipeline.com/NKorean_Hacking_The_Grid_WW3.php

While the eyes of America and the world are now rightfully set upon North Korea's nuclear program after their latest inter-continental-ballistic-missile test was called a 'game changer' while it was determined it would have been able to hit Alaska, we take a look at what could be a far bigger and more imminent threat in North Korea's 'elite cyberwarfare' units. 'Elite hackers' who've already proven themselves capable of hacking into major banks and capable of bringing down nuclear power plants and electrical grids.

While US bombers recently carried out a show of force exercise over South Korea as detailed in this NBC news story while also carrying out tests upon their THAAD missile defense system, as we read in this story from the NY Times and hear in the 2nd video below, according to the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, hackers have been targeting US nuclear facilities.

And while currently, a hacking group with alleged ties to the Russian government (of course!) is being blamed, we take a look here at why those attempting the hacking are more likely tied to North Korea (or those trying to blame a future false flag upon them).

As we hear in the 1st video below featuring Steve Quayle along with Alex Jones from Infowars, we should be watching very closely for a potential 'false flag' tied to North Korea in the future. Also discussing why the blame for North Korea's nuclear program in the first place could be laid directly at the feet of none other than 'Billy-bob' Clinton, we hear why we need to dig much deeper than the news we're getting from the msm on North Korea, especially considering the recent CFR study outlined below.   

“The EMP weapon, if it’s detonated high above the United States, can cause havoc from one end of the coast to the other, whereas a surface nuclear bomb would certainly be devastating to an area, like a city, but it would be limited to that geographic area, whereas the damage from an EMP could last up to a year and affect the entire country,” Yago said.

An EMP weapon would have the power to knock out the U.S. electrical grid, likely causing chaos among the population. Lights would go off, computers and televisions would shut down and cell phones would go dark once their batteries ran out. All electronic appliances that plug into power outlets would cease to operate. Water and gasoline could not be pumped, causing plumbing and vehicular transportation to shut down. Food could no longer be delivered to stores. Credit card readers and cash registers would not work.
