On Monday, May 11th, we had a surge of power through our house so great, that it magnified the brightness of our lightbulbs tenfold.  The lights and one of the circuits proceeded to burn out, and the surge fried anything that was plugged in—as a strong burst of magnetic energy would. Even a surge strip did not keep the cable box from being fried. This type of situation has never occurred in our home in over 50 years. The event occurred at a little after 13:00 pm CST, or 18:00 UTC. No source was found for the surge, only a fried wire, which had caused a burning smell in the home. Certainly a malfunctioning wire, more than like fried by the surge as well, would not cause a surge in power, but a reduction in it. Would the Zetas care to comment on whether we are now experiencing  EMPs from PX on a more frequent basis? If so, would it be recommended that all electronics not in use be disconnected from their power source? Space was relatively quiet, but the magnetosphere was fluctuating widely. [and from another] http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/news/greater-manchester-news... The cut was said to have been caused by an electrical surge. People in the area say "Smoke was coming from the electric cupboard from 86 Deansgate when the power surge hit. 4 fire engines responded to the call". Jade Barrow is a receptionist at 86 Deansgate, and said the whole building shook. She said: "The firemen explained to me that an electrical surge is like 2 magnets hitting each other. That's why it all shook because of the force."  [and from another]http://poleshift.ning.com/profiles/blog/show?id=3863141%3ABlogPost%... May 15. After 15 days with approximately 300 hours of missing data, it appears the uninterrupted BATSRUS RCM image feed has resumed.


Air France 447 in 2009 and Malaysia 370 and the recent Germanwings A320 are in the news because they impact the airline industry, and the blame thus placed elsewhere. To date, pilot suicide, storms, and bad pilot judgement have been used, and how is the public to know otherwise? Electric trains such as the Disney Monorail  and DC Metro crash incidents in 2009 and the recent Amtrak 188 go into investigation while talking heads murmur about safety devices or track maintenance or mechanical failure, which ultimately get the blame.  

It is only when the public is broadly affected that the public can get a hint that something else is afoot. Cell phones are regularly having disrupted service but the blame is placed on blocked access to towers or bad weather. The blackberry outage in 2008 was blamed on a software glitch. If the public is frankly being lied to, engineers responsible for maintaining equipment and the grid are not fooled. The talk has spilled over into the press, or into conversations with the public. During the Washington DC blackout, the electrical problem was described at first by the Washington Post as a “surge”. 

This is a key determinant between a failed electrical system, a simple outage, and electro-magnetic pulse. Pulse is a surge, and the sudden increase in the amount of magnetons and their associated electrons, such that equipment controlled by a steady pace of either particle flow goes into a runaway state. When equipment is guarded by surge protection, to guard against lightning strikes, it will shut down, as a brownout situation can damage equipment. But unless a lightning strike was present, there can be no excuse for a pulse or surge other than the presence of the charged tail of Planet X, aka Nibiru.  

What can the public expect? As cell phone service and cable TV via satellite continues to degrade, as airplanes increasingly crash during complete electronics failure or are forced to land with smoke in their cockpits, as electric trains surge off the tracks and brakes fail, as transformers explode at dams and on the grid, and as residential lights flicker and erratic and unexplained and spotty blackouts descend, the public can expect endless inane excuses from the establishment. The truth will be withheld because mankind is so dependent upon his electrical systems and equipment that the thought of being without is unthinkable. It is mass denial.

Fire at M’singh sub-station again

https://www.thedailystar.net/city/news/fire-msingh-sub-station-agai...

Power supply in Mymensingh district was disrupted for nearly eight hours after a fire broke out at a sub-station of Kewatkhali Power Grid yesterday morning (Sept 9).

The fire started around 10am from a circuit breaker and spread to the nearby control room, said Rafiqul Islam, chief engineer of Power Development Board in Mymensingh.

Two fire-fighting units brought the blaze under control soon, he said, adding that power supply to the entire Mymensingh division was halted following the incident.

However, power supply to Jamalpur, Sherpur and Netrakona districts was restored around 11:30am. "We have replaced the burnt circuit breaker with a new one," the chief engineer said.

Md Masudul Haque, executive engineer of Power Grid Company, said the power supply was restored in Mymensingh district around 7:30pm.

The incident happened two days after a fire broke out at the main station of Kewatkhali Power Grid, leaving the entire division out of electricity for several hours. Restoration work of power lines damaged during Tuesday's incident was going on when yesterday's fire broke out.

A four-member probe committee was formed by the district administration to look into Tuesday's incident.

Transformer fire at Georgia Power plant shakes Cobb County neighborhood

 (A giant cloud of dark smoke can be seen coming from the plant near Atlanta, Georgia. Credit: Twitter & https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/12606621/explosions-georgia-power-pla... )

A transformer fire at a Georgia Power plant led to reports of explosions throughout a Cobb County neighborhood.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/transformer-fire-at-georgia-power...

Channel 2 Action News received several messages from people who live near Georgia Power’s Plant-McDonough Atinkson saying they heard or felt some kind of explosion Sunday night.

Cobb County Fire and Emergency Services confirmed that crews battled a fire at the plant off South Cobb Drive. Channel 2 received an updated statement from Georgia Power:

“The transformer fire, which started and was contained within the Plant McDonough switchyard last night, has been extinguished. We have confirmed that there were no injuries as a result of the fire. Additionally, our power delivery system functioned as designed and there were no extended customer power outages as a result of this incident. The safety of our facilities and employees is our top priority every day. We are working to determine the exact cause of the fire but we believe it was the result of equipment failure related to the transformer. We appreciate the response, professionalism and hard work of fire personnel and other first responders as well as our employees in safely responding to this event.”

What caused the explosions and fire are still under investigation.

Channel 2 Action News spoke with a number of neighbors who were worried once they saw the fire and plumes of smoke and embers so close, that they voluntarily packed up and evacuated.

“Heard of number of popping noises and all kind of came out right when the big explosion happened over that way… big fireball into the air. Pretty impressive, pretty crazy,” said neighbor Joey Jarrell.

“When we looked outside our back window, the flames were up above the trees here. Before any fire crews got here or anything, it was intense,” said witness Shelby Watson.

A Cobb fire spokesman said they first received 911 calls around 11:28 p.m. Sunday night (Sept 6). Crews arrived on the scene minutes later, where they saw the heavy smoke and flames.

“Explosions are still under investigation. Right now crews are getting the fire knocked down so they can get close enough to further investigate,” Nick Danz said.

Danz said several units battled the two-alarm fire and hazmat crews were also called in.

Georgia Power told Cobb emergency services there were no injuries and everyone who was working was accounted for.

Emergency landing at Rick Husband International Airport

Wednesday, September 2nd 2020

Trouble in the skies Monday night, as an American Airlines plane was forced to make an emergency landing at Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport.

Amarillo Fire Department Public Information Officer Cody Snyder said there were reports of smoke in the 737’s cabin.

Data from the Flight Aware App revealed that Flight 2826, which originated in Chicago, bound for Phoenix had to divert to Amarillo an hour and 39 minutes into the flight. The plane, with 127 passengers and a crew of 6 on board, banked hard to its left near the Nebraska-Kansas line and headed straight for Amarillo where it landed safely.

The Amarillo Fire Department Red Units, which are highly trained for these situations, responded to the scene.

“So when the emergency comes in, they alert the tower. Tower calls over to the fire station. Fire station then rolls their vehicles out, they position at the lead end of the runway and then position another truck at the midpoint of the runway and then as it lands, they follow the aircraft in," Snyder said.

Snyder said fire crews boarded the plane to investigate the smoke scent in the cabin. They discovered most of the smoke had cleared, but the passengers were removed from the jet, and placed on another plane to complete their journey to Phoenix.

ABC 7 Meteorologist Corbin Voges was on the next aircraft that landed after Flight 2826.

"When we finally made contact with the runway, after about 10 or 15 seconds or so, you could smell it coming through the air vents. It smelled like an electrical fire--like wires were burning up. Then, I saw the fire truck and it kinda made sense. You start putting pieces together and then you could see the other plane out there at the end of the runway," Voges said.

Snyder said AFD crews go through annual training certification, which requires loads of book work, studying and several field tests.

"Once a year, they have to do what is called a live fire burn. They go out and simulate a fire. It is a mock-up of an aircraft. We pour diesel all around it, and set it on fire, which simulates jet fuel. Then, several crews go out and they practice over and over, for about two weeks, putting out simulated aircraft fires," Snyder said.

Nine officials die in fire at Srisailam hydel power station in Telangana, CID probe ordered

According to preliminary reports, the cause of the fire was due to a short-circuit. Rescue teams from Singareni Collieries Company Limited were pressed into service.

 Employees trying to douse the fire in the Srisailam Hydro Electric power plant.

https://www.newindianexpress.com/states/telangana/2020/aug/21/nine-...

HYDERABAD: Nine officials have died after a major fire broke out in the underground hydroelectric power station located in the Telangana side of the Srisailam dam over Krishna river in the Nagarkurnool district late on Thursday night (Aug 20). The fire started in the auxiliary voltage transformer of the fourth unit of the power station.

The Telangana govt has ordered a CID probe into the fire accident. CID Additional DGP Govind Singh will be the enquiry officer.

According to preliminary reports, the cause of fire was due to a short-circuit. Rescue teams from Singareni Collieries Company Limited were pressed into service to rescue the employees.

Officials identified one of the bodies as that of Sundar, who was TS Genco Assistant Engineer (AE). His body was found on the third floor of the hydel power plant, which has five floors.

The other trapped TS GENCO officials were Deputy Engineer Srinivas and Assistant Engineers Venkat Rao, Fathima, Mohan and Sushma. Two trapped persons were employees of Amar Raja batteries. 

Ten persons who escaped from the fire were rushed to the TS GENCO hospital for treatment.

A TS GENCO employee, who was at the hydroelectric power plant when the fire started said that, "it  seemed to have started in one of the panels, somewhere near the units 4, 5 and 6. At least ten people were working around that time. We immediately tried to control the fire using carbon dioxide fire extinguishing cylinders."

He further added that they tried to quell the flames for at least 20 minutes. "Thick smoke had engulfed the entire area. The visibility was so poor because of smoke that we could not see the person standing next to us. We had no idea as to what was happening and later a few of us somehow managed to escape. Only God knows how we managed to escape. I am still worried, some of my friends are still trapped there in fire."

  https://twitter.com/NewIndianXpress/status/1296651974868271104

As per preliminary reports, each turbine in the hydroelectric power station has the capacity to generate 150 MW power, but on Thursday there was a sudden spike in power generation, up to 180 MW, which resulted to a short circuit causing the fire. 

While the police, disaster management and National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) officials, with the necessary safety gear and oxygen kits, are trying their best to rescue the persons trapped in the fire, the task is proving very tough due to thick smoke billowing at the accident site and the flames are still raring. 

Telangana power minister G Jagadish Reddy reached the spot soon after the accident and is at the site, monitoring the situation, along with various senior revenue and police officials of the district.

Late night fire at JVA substation leaves many without power

In an effort to speedily restore the service, the City of Ekurhuleni is engaging various stakeholders, including Eskom, for urgent assistance.

https://africanreporter.co.za/151991/late-night-fire-at-jva-substat...

A fire at around 6.30pm last night (Aug 20) damaged a 40MVA transformer at the JVA substation, leaving businesses and residents without power. This was the second fire at the substation this year, which caused enormous damage to the infrastructure, plunging parts of New Era industrial, Fulcrum, Dal Fouche, Pollak Park and Reedville into darkness. Ekurhuleni’s city manager Dr Imogen Mashazi visited the substation this morning (August 20) to assess the extent of the damage. “Our priority right now is to restore power to all affected customers, businesses and residents alike. “At the same time it is important to find the root cause of the damage so that we can be able to put preventative measures in place,” said Mashazi, while addressing members of the Eastern Gauteng Chamber of Commerce and Industry on site. Mashazi undertook to share the results of the investigation with all the relevant stakeholders.

 The transformer was badly damaged during the fire.

Businesses were especially anxious for the power to be restored as quickly as possible due to the expenditure associated with an extended power outage. Some reported having spent over R10-million over the 17 days it took to restore power when the last fire happened in February. When asked if the City of Ekurhuleni would refund/compensate residents or businesses for damaged equipment or loss of food, Mashazi explained they are not obliged to replace anything because incidents happen everywhere and it is not the responsibility of the metro to replace food when there are electricity issues. “We buy the electricity from Eskom. “Every month we must pay R2-billion. “Even now we’re struggling to pay because people are not paying for services. “We must buy electricity so that our customers can have electricity and water. “It’s unfortunate that such things happen,” said Mashazi.

In an effort to speedily restore the service, the City of Ekurhuleni is engaging various stakeholders, including Eskom, for urgent assistance. City spokesperson Themba Gadebe said the municipality will keep the community informed throughout the process of restoring power to the affected areas.

Norfolk Broads village and pub left without power as fire crews battle sub-station blaze

https://www.edp24.co.uk/news/ferry-inn-and-stokesby-homes-without-p...

An electrical transformer fire in Stokesby saw the entire village plunged into darkness and people told to leave their homes. Engineers are working to reconnect people to the grid. The Ferry Inn has had power restored and will open at 11am today (Saturday, August 15) Picture: Alison Brewster/Ferry Inn 

"..Emergency services rushed to the scene at Stokesby, in the heart of the Norfolk Broads, on Friday at around 8.30pm amid reports of a large fire in an electricity sub-station close to a tight cluster of homes.

Police at the scene closed the road and residents closest to the blaze were asked to leave their properties.

Alison Brewster, landlady at the nearby Ferry Inn, said they first realised something was wrong when lights started flickering and they saw huge plumes of smoke coming from near The Green.

She said: “All the food had gone out and we were sitting outside just to cool down and we saw all the lights in the pub started flickering.

“There was this incredible noise and we could not work out where it was coming from.

“We looked over to The Green and saw these huge plumes of smoke and this massive fire behind double gates.

“We went out and my daughter and her boyfriend started banging on doors to get everyone out.”

Mrs Brewster added that by chance a police officer was already at the pub on another matter and was able to act instantly, cordoning off the road.

The noise and scale of the response which included fire crews from Acle, Gorleston, and Carrow as well as police drew people from their homes, worried about what was going on.

For a time the whole village was plunged into darkness but those closest to the electricity sub-station were still cut-off this morning.

The latest information from UK Power Networks said engineers had been able to carry out some repairs.

Damage to overhead network equipment, however, needed a specialist team expected to arrive in the village at around 9am.

They estimated those still without power would be reinstated by 12.30pm today, Saturday..."

Steelworks site blaze: Seven engines and three hours to battle massive fire at Bulk Terminal

Electrical substation confirmed as the seat of the fire, the fire brigade has confirmed

Seven fire engines were sent to battle a blaze near the former SSI site which sent a massive smoke plume into the skies above Teesside.

Firefighters were on scene for just over three hours on Friday, one of the hottest days of the year.

Cleveland Fire Brigade have confirmed the fire involved two transformers at an electrical substation on the still-operational Redcar Bulk Teminal site, close to the former SSI plant on the Trunk Road in Redcar.

Crews from Coulby Newham, Grangetown, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough and Stockton were sent to the scene after the blaze broke out just after 11.30am.

A cordon was set up but there were no reported injuries or casualties in the fire.

Cleveland Fire Brigade have since confirmed they were called at 11.35am and left the scene just before 3pm that afternoon.

The fire was at the Redcar Bulk Terminal.

"The fire involved two transformers in electrical substation. One transformer 100% fire damaged and one 80% fire damaged," said a spokesman for the brigade.

"Two jets, one ground monitor and six breathing apparatus were used.".."
