Didn't quite know where to post this. Unusual elecrical explosions might be something we'll see more of going in to the shift.
JACKSON, MI – Westwood Mall and surrounding stores were evacuated Thursday night, after electrical lines underneath the mall parking lot caused a series of explosions, according to Blackman- Leoni Township public safety Deputy Director Jon Johnston.
At about 6:11 p.m., officers arrived at the mall, 1850 W. Michigan Ave., in response to a 911 call reporting a possible explosion.
Johnston said officials soon determined the cause was electrical, not gas, and called Consumers Energy to the scene.
The explosions were from several electrical lines below the parking lot, which then lofted a manhole cover six to 10 feet into the air at the rear of the mall by JC Penney, Johnston said.
The area was immediately evacuated by Blackman Leoni Public Safety officials, with the help of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and Jackson Police Department.
Johnston said the WalMart shopping center had already lost power due to the electrical issues and mall officials made the decision to close early as a precautionary measure.
The cause of the electrical explosions was not immediately known, but crews from Consumers Energy have been called in to investigate the scene and help restore power to the area, Johnston said.
“The scene has been turned over to Consumers Energy but we’ll have a presence on the scene until the area is secure,” he said.
Johnston is unsure when power will be restored to the area, but said generator trucks have been called in to provide electricity to the produce sections of WalMart.
We, the Zetas, cannot take credit for the recent rash of power outages affecting all sides of the globe, as this is a result of equipment failure in all cases. That the authorities decline to announce the failure is due to the media blackout in place on all matters that point to earth movement, stretching or compression, volcanic awakening, earthquake frequency and intensity increase, or rising oceans. The news is closely monitored, and must be approved prior to release. In that the establishment, which includes as we have explained the major powers of the world and the hands that own them, the wealthy elite, has not come up with a proper excuse for these outages, they are left unexplained. On occasion an honest comment will slip through, but if it approaches the truth, it is countered, promptly. So what hasbeen happening?
As with derailing trains, which cannot be explained by any but earth movement, and exploding gas lines or broken water main, which likewise point to earth movement, electrical systems are fragile, a single broken point causing domino effects. But the problems are more than single breaks, they are massive breaks, of major cables running underwater between European countries, of entire connections across a seaway tearing apart, of whole substations fracturing so all connections coming in or out are essentially broken. Large mechanical breaks, and not the ones that should be the focus of concern. Electrical breaks result in lose of electrical power, the public being plunged into darkness or without communications, but far worse than this are breaks that are about to occur in gas lines and gasoline refinery and distribution networks. When these break, as break they will, there will be explosions and fires that will not be so easily corrected nor subdued. A holocaust, an inferno, one that spreads without abatement along the distribution lines, so hot and intense that none can approach.
