Re: Power outage in North East

I just got off the phone with an old boss of mine.  ;-)  It would appear 
that there is a large fire at a ConEd plant that has now caused a 
cascading power outage in the Northeast.  Some more plants may have 
tripped offline because of the load they absorbed from the loss of the 
other plant.

If I get more information, I'll post.

Has anyone heard of a big Power outage in the North east?
I just got a call from one of my tech's in the GBLX bldg in Newark, NJ
at 1085 raymond and they are telling him that they lost power!
But I also got a call from AT&T in NY that they also lost Power!

It looks like a rather large power outage -- we're in South Western
Canada, and power is out in Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph, Hespler, and
pretty sure) London as well.  Can't say about Toronto.
