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.

 For second time in a week, short but widespread West Seattle power outage: 16,000+ customers affected

 (Screengrab from Seattle City Light website at peak of outage)

(Aug 6)

8:30 AM: Thanks for the texts. Ours is out too. We’re getting reports from a widespread area – as far north as Admiral. More to come.

8:38 AM: City Light map says more than 16,000 homes/businesses are out. Remember that intersections are four-way stops when the signals are out.

8:46 AM: City Light says via Twitter that they “believe the outage was caused by a switching problem and estimate power will be restored about 9:15 a.m.”

8:50 AM: It’s been six days since a similarly widespread outage (WSB coverage here) was blamed on a “relay malfunction,” though that one lasted only a few minutes.

8:53 AM: Our power’s back (Fauntleroy/Gatewood line). Yours? We of course will be following up with SCL. Also note that – as happened after last Tuesday’s even-shorter outage – there may be some lingering effects like flashing traffic signals.

9:26 AM: Just talked with Scott Thomsen at City Light, who is looking into questions such as whether this was human error, a mechanical problem, etc. He says the “routine maintenance” at the Delridge Substation continues so that’s one thing this did have in common with last Tuesday’s outage. We will update again later when we get more followup information.

2:23 PM: SCL’s Thomsen says via e-mail: “Crews were testing switchgear at the Delridge Substation as a part of our maintenance and reliability work. When one of the workers closed the doors for the switchgear they were testing, the vibrations tripped a relay, which then opened, cutting off power for the electrical bus (imagine a giant power strip connected to four feeder lines going out of the substation into the neighborhoods). Our engineering staff is looking at what we can do to dampen vibrations and avoid a repeat of this problem, which does occasionally affect utilities.”

Manhole Fire Spews Acrid Smoke for an Hour, Freaks Out Upper West Side


 A smoking manhole fire spewed a foul-smelling grayish haze into the air on the Upper West Side for at least an hour Friday morning (Aug 3), freaking out the neighborhood.

Fire officials and cops responded to the scene near Broadway and West 64th Street just before 10 a.m., then told News 4 the issue was a Con Ed problem. They "closed the job" a short time later, leaving the still acrid-smoke spewing hole cordoned off with yellow caution tape as cars flew by.

Before they left, fire crews at the scene told News 4 they were concerned the manhole "could blow." Con Ed told News 4 the issue involves an underground electric cable, though it's not clear if it's a feeder cable or one that supplies power to surrounding buildings.."

American Airlines flight with smoke in cabin makes emergency landing in Halifax

 10 minutes after declaring an emergency the flight from Ireland landed safely in Halifax


An American Airlines flight travelling from Shannon, Ireland, to Philadelphia, Pa., had to make an emergency landing at Halifax Stanfield International Airport on Wednesday afternoon (Aug 1) because of smoke in the cabin.

The Boeing 757 aircraft declared the emergency at 12:40 p.m. AT and landed safely in Halifax about 10 minutes later, said Theresa Rath Spicer, speaking for the airport.

"It all happened pretty quickly," she said.

The airport's fire service was waiting when the plane landed. Both Halifax Regional Fire and Emergency and paramedics were at the scene. 

Despite some reports to the contrary there were no injuries. There were 176 people on board.."


Southwest flight carrying 135 people makes emergency landing at BWI Marshall Airport 


A plane carrying 130 passengers and five crew members made an emergency landing at BWI Marshall Airport on Tuesday night (July 31) after a problem with the wing flaps.

Southwest Airlines Flight 1805 from Aruba touched down at about 8:50 p.m., flanked by firetrucks, officials and a passenger said. No injuries were reported.

Neysa Condron was returning from a vacation with her two daughters when she and other passengers realized the plane had been flying in a figure-eight-like pattern for about 20 minutes shortly before their scheduled landing time of 8.

“The pilot came on and told us that there was a problem,” Condron said in a telephone interview from baggage claim. “He said, ‘Our wings’ landing flaps are not coming out. We’re in contact with [officials on] the ground — we’re trying to figure out what to do.’ ”

About 40 minutes later, the pilot calmly told passengers that it would be “a fast landing” because the flaps would not be able to slow the plane, Condron said. The pilot also said the planes’ tires might blow from the heat, she said.

Before landing, the plane flew in circles near the airport to burn fuel, which Southwest spokesman Chris Mainz said in an email is “standard procedure.”

Mainz said the captain declared the emergency landing “out of an abundance of caution” because of “an issue with the flaps.”


 NY: Smell of Smoke Forces Emergency Landing at Buffalo Airport


 July 31--The smell of smoke forced the emergency landing Monday of an American Airlines flight from Philadelphia at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport in Cheektowaga.

A spokeswoman for the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority said the emergency landing occurred about 3 p.m., and was precipitated after a number of people on board the plane, American Airlines Flight 9879, noticed a smell of smoke. Initial reports were that there was smoke in the cockpit, but emergency crews did not find any evidence of a fire, the spokeswoman said..."


CenturyLink vendor again blamed for 911 outage in multi-state outage


 ST. PAUL—The CenturyLink vendor responsible for a major 911 outage in 2014 was also responsible for the multi-state disruption that led to an untold number of unanswered emergency calls Wednesday, Aug. 1.

"I have never in my 30 years experienced an outage such as what we experienced yesterday," Dana Wahlberg, director of the Department of Public Safety's emergency communication networks division said during a news conference Thursday.

The outage across the state's 102 dispatch centers took place shortly after 4 p.m. Wednesday, and lasted roughly 50 minutes. North Dakota and North Carolina were also confirmed to be affected, officials said.

The Fargo-Moorhead area and its counties Cass and Clay, lost service for nearly an hour, though surrounding counties in both Minnesota and North Dakota were unaffected, officials said.

The vendor, Longmont, Co.-based West Safety Services, was "completing a routine process on their network when yesterday's outage occurred," state officials said..."


Toledo firefighters respond to underground vault fire


 Toledo Fire and Rescue Department responded late Tuesday to a downtown underground electric vault fire, according to spokesman Pvt. Sterling Rahe. 

Crews were called to the scene at approximately 10:45 p.m. Tuesday (July 31)  to the fire, where several transformers are located underground, Private Rahe said. 

When crews arrived, fire was shooting through a large grate off North Erie Street and rolling up the facade of a nearby building — causing scorch markings, according to the spokesman. The fire was contained to the vault area and it did not extend to the building. 

Crews remained on scene well into the morning Wednesday to monitor the incident and assist Toledo Edison workers as needed.."



Transformer fire creates havoc on southwest side


 Anderson, Indiana – Much of the city’s southwest side was without power Thursday (Aug 2) after a high-voltage transformer caught fire around 9:30 a.m.

An equipment failure of the Anderson Municipal Power & Light distribution system caused a large transformer box on the corner of Enterprise Drive and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to malfunction, bringing down the electrical grid for nearly 450 customers including several businesses at the Flagship Enterprise Center.

Power & Light Director Tony Pochard said he was unsure of the direct cause, but the incident was being investigated.

A temporary solution was able to restore power to some of the businesses; however, a more permanent fix will was expected to be in place within 24 to 48 hours, Pochard said.

“All available crews with Anderson Light & Power are working to resolve the problem,” Pochard said in a press release.

Some businesses were currently operating off auxiliary generator power as well.

Early Twitter reports from the scene Thursday:

Thousands without power after massive transformer station fire in North York


 Flames are seen coming from a transformer station fire near Finch Avenue and Signet Drive early Saturday  morning (July 28) . (Peter Muscat)

 Thousands of people are without power after an overnight transformer station fire in North York.

The blaze broke out at a Hydro One facility near Finch Avenue and Signet Drive at around 12:15 a.m.

Toronto Fire says that by the time crews arrived on scene the structure was fully engulfed in flames.

Firefighters were initially instructed not to use flowing water until the power to the transformer station could be shut off. After about 50 minutes, crews from Hydro One did arrive on scene and shut off the power, allowing firefighters to begin pumping water onto the raging blaze.

Toronto Fire says that the facility was also a significant distance from hydrants, which further complicated matters.

They say that at one point crews ran out of hose and had to find a workaround to get water on the fire.

During the height of the fire, police closed down Highway 400 from highways 407 to 401 as well as Finch Avenue from Weston Road to Highway 400 and Signet Drive from Finch Avenue to High Meadow Place. Highway 400 and Finch Avenue have since reopened, however.

Public works crews with a vacuum truck were also called in to assist with the cleanup after the transformer began to release oil.."

 Fire at TECO substation causing power outages in Riverview, Gibsonton


 HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla — Hillsborough County Fire Rescue crews fought a fire at a TECO substation Friday (July 27) evening that left thousands of area residents without power.

  • Incident occurred around 5:30 p.m.
  • Investigators believe malfunction caused explosion
  • Some TECO customers still without power

A transformer explosion at the East Bay Substation — located at 7350 Big Bend Road — around 5:30 p.m. caused the fire and the subsequent outages, according to Fire Rescue officials.

The explosion ignited the mineral oil normally used to cool the transformers. The best means of fighting the fire, according to fire officials, was to keep it contained and simply wait for it to burn itself out.

"The first thing is, you can't use water with it," said Hillsborough County Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Clifford Bassett. "The second thing is you can’t see electricity — you don’t know where it is, where it isn’t." 

"In this situation, we want to make sure that there’s not been any damage to the wires that may be out of position from where they normally are before we send our guys in there," Bassett said.

The fire at one point reportedly left over 4,000 customers without power. The outages were concentrated in the Riverview and Gibsonton areas of the county..."


A major fire in the Paris suburbs paralysed traffic in and out of the city's Montparnasse train station on Friday (Jul 27), just as thousands of French and foreign travellers head on their holidays this weekend.


 The fire at an electrical centre run by the national transport network in Issy-les-Moulineaux, southwest of Paris, sent a massive plume of smoke rising into the skies.

The blaze, just next door to Microsoft's main French offices, prompted an evacuation of 2,500 people and caused a power cut to some 16,000 homes in the Paris suburbs, authorities said.

The fire shut down traffic just before noon at Montparnasse, the main station connecting Paris to west and southwest France, with rail operator SNCF warning of heavy disruption for the rest of the day.

"Those who can delay their journeys need to delay them," Alain Krakovitch, a senior official at rail operator SNCF, told reporters.

The station in southern Paris, which in the midst of a heatwave is sweltering in temperatures of 36 degree Celsius, was crowded with stranded passengers staring up at the departure boards.

"It's infuriating, it's not clear at all what's happening," said Eva Basin, a 42-year-old Parisian who was supposed to be heading off on vacation to Brittany.

"They've advised me to delay my ticket, but I only have a week of holidays," she said. "All the trains for tomorrow are full. I'm going to try to take a bus."

Some trains were back up and running by Friday afternoon, albeit with a three-hour delay, while others were re-routed.

SNCF official Patrick Jeantet said a transformer had caught fire at the electrical centre, which controls Montparnasse's safety installations. The cause of the fire was as yet unknown..."

Deadly Substation Fire becomes top priority wildfire in U.S.; cause under investigation


 (KPTV) - The deadly Substation Fire that started near The Dalles has become the top priority wildfire in the U.S., according to fire officials. 

Officials said Thursday afternoon that 217 firefighters from 73 agencies across the state were working to control the 50,000-acre wildfire.

Additional resources, including 60 more people to help on all aspects of the firefighting operation, were headed to the scene Thursday after the fire was designated the country’s top priority wildfire.

Officials said there was also a significant air attack being utilized on the fire, including multiple tankers dropping water and retardant.

Firefighters said 35-40 mph winds created challenging conditions for firefighters Thursday, with the fire seeing significant growth at its south end, as well as growth to the north.

The fire was first spotted Tuesday (July 17) near The Dalles and quickly got out of control. It spread 18 miles south its first night.

One person has died as a result of the fire. Investigators said 64-year-old John Ruby was creating a fire line with his tractor to protect neighboring property when he died from exposure to the fire.

The Ruby family released a statement Thursday thanking the community for their support, while also acknowledging that they were still “actively working to keep our friends and neighbors safe.” A donation fund was also established by the family.

Wasco County Sheriff Lane Magill said Thursday multiple agencies were working around the clock to determine the cause of the fire. He described it as an “ongoing criminal investigation,” but he said releasing any further details could compromise the investigation.

A tip line was created as part of the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-452-7888.

Officials said 900 homes were under Level 2 – “Be set” – and Level 3 – “Go now” – evacuation orders. The towns of Moro and Grass Valley were under Level 3 evacuations.

As of Thursday evening, Biggs Junction was reduced to a Level 2 evacuation. 

Evacuation updates are being posted at facebook.com/SubstationFire2018. .."

Comcast begins restoring service after nationwide outage


Comcast customers across the United States were slowly coming back online late Friday afternoon after a massive outage left them without internet, cable TV, and telephone service. [Again...]


The outage started Friday morning and quickly spread to several cities, including New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, San Francisco, Denver and Chicago, according to Downdetector.com, a site that monitors service outages. Complaints peaked early in the day, but Comcast (CCZ) service problems continued popping up well into the afternoon. In some cases the outage last most of the afternoon, but Comcast said in a tweet Friday evening that it had started restoring service.

The company was trying to determine just what went wrong, but said in a statement that "one of Comcast's large backbone network partners had a fiber cut that we believe is also impacting other providers."

The company could not say how many people were affected by outage, which it called "nationwide."

Fiber optic cables are used for long distance high-speed data transmission.

Customers took to their cellphones and mobile devices to complain vociferously on Twitter. Some reported difficulty getting through to Comcast customer service. The company took to Twitter to provide updates and urged customers not to call 911.

Comcast landline phone service goes down accross US, still down in parts of United States


Comcast tells CNET the outage is mostly fixed, but some small businesses still say the phones are down.

Comcast confirmed Wednesday it's having some phone trouble nationwide. Several major cities are affected, according to the website Down Detector, including New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta, Portland, Houston, Denver, Philadelphia and Seattle, and many small businesses are taking to social media to tweet that they can't take calls.

As of Thursday, June 7, Comcast service hasn't entirely been restored. Comcast tweeted that "a small group continues to see issues" and suggests that customers reset their voice modems to try to fix it.

Comcast tells CNET that only its Xfinity Voice landline phone service is affected, not internet services. Some people are reporting that their Comcast internet is down as well, but others report it's working just fine.

At 12:37 p.m. PT Wednesday, Comcast told CNET that most services have been restored:

"We experienced a service interruption today with our Comcast Business Voice and VoiceEdge Select services and we apologize. Our engineers began working to address the issue immediately and services have been restored for most of our customers. We recognize that some customers are still impacted and we expect the issue to be fully resolved shortly. We have every resource focused on getting everyone back online and apologize again to the customers who were affected."

However, small businesses are still actively tweeting that their phone lines are down. Here are a few we saw earlier Wednesday:

Originally published June 6 at 12:07 p.m. PT.

Update, 1:06 p.m. PT: With Comcast statement.

Update, 2:20 p.m. PT: To add Comcast's assurance that internet is not affected, only phones.

Update, June 6 at 9:08 a.m. PT: To point out that Comcast's service still hasn't been fully restored as of Thursday morning.
