Millions in California, Arizona and Mexico Without Power
Millions of residents in California, Arizona and Mexico are without power right now. There’s no word on the cause yet, but officials say that the lights may not be back on until Friday.
A California nuclear plant has been shut down as a precaution, and the cities of Phoenix and San Diego are, essentially, a giant mess. While we don’t know what caused this yet (weather and a downed line are both being put forward as possibilities) that an outage could affect such a large area is yet another argument that our nation’s grid is in serious need of improvement.
