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.

Local air regulators have opened a new investigation into Valero’s Benicia refinery after another malfunction at the facility sent black smoke into the air three times over the weekend (May 28).

 The flaring comes close to a month after the refinery experienced its first full outage in decades, resulting in toxic gases being released into the atmosphere.

One of the refinery’s units had some sort of release on Sunday 

afternoon, according to Benicia city officials, as the facility continues to struggle to fully restart its operations.

Unlike the incident in early May, there were no shelter-in-place orders, evacuations and hospitalizations.

But state officials normally notified of similar refinery problems were not told about the latest incident. And the city and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District are unaware of what chemicals were sent into the air because of it.

“That is part of the problem — we don’t know what is released,” Benicia Mayor Elizabeth Patterson said in an email Tuesday.

Valero is not releasing detailed information about Sunday’s malfunction, but it is linking it with the problem earlier in the month that sent flames, smoke and toxic gas into the sky.

“Valero’s Benicia refinery continues to work to restore operations following the May 5 power outage caused by  disruption from Pacific Gas & Electric,” said company spokeswoman Lillian Riojas in an email almost identical to one she  sent to KQED two weeks ago about another release.

 “Intermittent flaring and related startup issues may occur,” Riojas said.

 The problem was tied to Valero’s scrubber unit, city officials said.

That unit acts as a large filter, cleaning up gas or liquid that exits a processing unit, according to Tulane professor Eric Smith, who specializes in gas and oil production.

The refinery sent black smoke that came from oil residue into the sky on three occasions Sunday afternoon, each one lasting between 15 and 45 seconds, said Benicia Fire Chief Jim Lydon.

The air district then sent an inspector to the facility, according to Tom Flannigan, a spokesman for the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.

“This new incident that happened over the weekend may have been tied to them testing out their equipment and their processes as they bring them back up to speed,” Flannigan said in an interview Tuesday.

The district has already issued six notices of violation against Valero in connection with the May 5 outage.

“We did see some dark black smoke that was released for a period of time,” Flannigan said. “We’ll be taking a close look to see what exactly what was emitted and if they’re subject to any fines.”

Unlike a series of releases that took place at the refinery in the days after the outage, Sunday’s incident was not reported to the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, which administers a hazardous materials notification database. You can see the Valero outage notifications here.

In fact, state air regulators were not kept in the loop either.

“We have nothing new, and nothing new was reported to Cal OES over the weekend,” said David Clegern, a spokesman for the California Air Resources Board, which has had air monitors in place near the refinery since the outage.

The outage is under investigation by a third party hired by PG&E, the air 

district, California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) and Solano County’s Department of Resource Management.

The county is investigating another incident that may be tied to the aftermath of the outage. On May 15, several people who work at MRC Global, a company on Bayshore Road not too far away the refinery, found an “oil-based” substance on their cars.

A hazardous materials specialist conducted tests on the vehicles, according to Terry Schmidtbauer, director of Solano County’s Department of Resource Management.

City and county officials asked Valero to take the vehicles to a car-wash, Schmidtbauer said.

The electricity failure at the refinery and resulting safety concerns have prompted a push for Benicia to develop an industrial safety ordinance similar to one that governs refineries in Contra Costa County. And it also led Mayor Patterson to call for the city to do a better job of telling its residents about major emergencies.

British Airways cancels Heathrow, Gatwick flights after systems outage

May 27, 2017

http://edition.cnn.com/2017/05/27/world/british-airways-computer-fa...

London (CNN)British Airways has canceled all flights from London's two biggest airports for at least several hours after experiencing "a major IT system failure that is causing very severe disruption to our flight operations worldwide," the airline said Saturday.

Passengers wait Saturday at London's Heathrow Airport as British Airways experiences computer problems.

"There's no evidence it's a cyberattack," airline officials said.
Flights before 1 p.m. ET (6 p.m. BST) were canceled, with more cancellations possible.

"The terminals at Heathrow and Gatwick have become extremely congested and we have cancelled all flights from Heathrow and Gatwick before 6pm UK time today, so please do not come to the airports," British Airways said in a statement.
"We will provide more information on ba.com, Twitter and through airport communication channels as soon as we can for flights due to depart after that time."

In response to tweets from travelers, it said that it was experiencing a "global system outage" which was affecting its website, online check-in, contact centers and baggage tracing.
"Working on this as a matter of priority, but if your flight is departing tomorrow you may have to complete check in at the airport," it tweeted to one customer.

Airline workers 'totally crippled'

Travelers on this spring bank holiday weekend in Britain were already reporting disruptions, including baggage and flight delays, when the airline reported serious computer problems around midday. CONTINUE...

Faulty equipment to blame for massive power outage across Sydney (May26)
 http://www.9news.com.au/national/2017/05/26/16/39/thousands-without...

 Power has been safely restored to 60,000 homes and businesses and the M5 tunnel after a mass blackout across Sydney  this afternoon.

Faulty equipment inside an Ausgrid substation in south western Sydney is to blame for a massive power outage which closed both directions of the M5 East tunnel during peak hour, causing traffic chaos on Sydney streets.
The power failure in Canterbury happened just as thousands of commuters were trying to get home or travel into the city for Vivid, the AFL at the SCG and to ANZ Stadium for the NRL.

Up to 100 sets of traffic lights were also blacked out in Croydon, Canterbury, Bexley, Roselands, Kingsgrove, Wolli Creek, Mascot and Burwood Heights.

The power started to return about 6pm, with the M5 East tunnel westbound re-opening and the eastbound tunnel re-opening about 6.30pm.

However, it was a close call - with the tunnel minutes away from losing all battery back-up, which would have meant a reboot for the whole system, roads minister Melinda Pavey told 2GB.

"It's going to be a long time to clear the mess but we were also looking at maybe a six to eight-hour window of it being closed," she said.

With kilometres of traffic backed up across the city as a result of the outage, Ms Pavey advised motorists to "stay in the city as long as you can - delay your trip or at least catch a train home"..."

Blown transformer kills power to Marina del Rey area 

 (May25)  http://www.dailybreeze.com/general-news/20170525/blown-transformer-...

 A power outage was affecting the Marina del Rey area Thursday night.

 The outage was caused by a blown Southern California Edison transformer, according to a sergeant at the  sheriff’s Marina del Rey Station.

A witness reported about 8 p.m. that traffic was jammed, stop lights and street lights were out and some stores were closed on Lincoln Boulevard near Washington Boulevard.

No one from the utility was immediately available to provide additional details.

Yucatán power outage affected 1.7 million

 Transmission line failure cut electricity in three states (May24)

 A power outage in three states yesterday left over 1.7 million people without electricity for up to seven hours.

 The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) reported that a technical failure in a transmission line caused the   blackout, affecting Campeche, Yucatán and Quintana Roo, a region where temperatures can easily soar above 30 C and have done recently.

The outage occurred a few minutes after 11:00am, and by 8:30pm service was 99% restored.
In Yucatán, the local chapter of a business and tourism organization reported that some 5,000 establishments, including restaurants, hotels and departments stores, were affected.

In the state’s capital and largest city, Mérida, traffic signals stopped working, sending downtown traffic out of control.

The chairman of the Mérida office of the National Chamber of Commerce, Canaco, said that no downtown establishment “was spared,” but that power was reestablished in less than an hour.

Hospitals managed by relying on emergency power generators.

With no data yet on losses, the most affected appear to have been seafood processing plants located in the coast, where the blackout lasted up to three hours.

To the southwest, in Campeche, over 170,000 people living in the municipalities of Champotón, Calkini, Tenabo, Hecelchakán, Hopelchén and Candelaria were affected by the blackout, which lasted just under an hour.

In the Quintana Roo municipalities of Benito Juárez and Solidaridad, where Cancun and Playa del Carmen are located, the powwer was out for well over three hours.

Mobile phone infrastructure along the Caribbean coast was also affected for the duration of the emergency.

The CFE said the outage originated with a problem in a transmission line between Tabasco and Campeche.

Four people rushed to hospital and 27 others are treated for nausea and dizziness, forcing their plane to make an emergency landing at Orlando airport
 http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4533118/People-complain-nau...
 * Flight to Bristol returned to Orlando Sanford International Airport on Sunday (May 21)

 *Crew and passengers said they felt sick and air hostesses fainted onboard

 *One passenger claimed smoke from recent bush fire had got into the engine

 *Officials checked air quality of plane, with 287 people, and said it was normal

Four people were rushed to hospital and 27 others were treated for nausea and dizziness after their plane was forced to turn back 45 minutes after take-off.

A Bristol-bound flight made an emergency landing at Orlando Sanford International Airport in Florida on Sunday after crew and passengers reported feeling sick.

Officials checked the air quality of the plane, which was carrying 287 passengers, but reported that it was normal and do not know what caused the sickness.
"I was on the back of the plane when the air hostesses fainted,' one female passenger told News6.

Me and my husband were on the last seat and I came over really dizzy and strange. 

They put me on oxygen and I went to the hospital last night and I had tests there.

They said that it could have been the smoke that got into the engines from the bush fires".

'The paramedics came onto the plane to check it and then the firefighters came in and said there were a lot of gases in there.

'I just felt a bit sick and dizzy, lightheaded. I didn't smell anything. I had a funny feeling, I didn't feel normal. 

'I think it could have been easily avoided if they knew there was a bushfire and they had taken a different route.'

Passengers suspected that a four-acre bush fire that blazed near homes in Wedgefield, Florida, on Saturday, caused smoke that got into the plane. 

Firefighters managed to contain the fire, but said they expected smoke to linger for some time.

TUI, the Dutch budget airlines, is investigating the incident, an airport spokesman said..."

Bhubaneswar Air India flight makes emergency landing after suspected smoke in cockpit 

 http://badhub.net/2017/05/bhubaneswar-air-india-flight-makes-emerge...

 The flight from Mumbai to Bhubaneswar turned back (May 22) while it was mid-air and landed in Mumbai shortly after takeoff.  However, an Air India spokesperson in New Delhi confirmed that the aircraft made a safe landing and that all passengers were safe.

Sources said that another flight carrying these passengers left Mumbai airport at 4.15 pm and arrive at Biju Patnaik International Airport (BPIA) at 6.40 pm.

Some reports suggest that the smoke was seen coming out of the cockpit at around 14:50 pm, moments after flight started its journey towards Bhubaneshwar.

An Air India spokesperson in a statement said, "AI 669 received the pushback clearance at 1.45 p.m".

The emergency was later withdrawn and the aircraft was parked in a remote bay at the CSMIA. "The fire engines were pressed into service".

Window washers trapped high up AXA Tower in Syracuse when fire knocks out power (video)

http://www.syracuse.com/news/index.ssf/2017/05/window_washers_trapp...

 SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Two window washers Monday (May 22) morning suddenly found themselves stuck on a  scaffold, hanging against a building whose basement was on fire in downtown Syracuse.

Reynaldo Ramos, 38, said through a translator that he and his partner were washing the windows -- something that gets done a couple times per season -- on the AXA Tower I building when they smelt something burning.

Not long after they heard a large explosion below, and suddenly the lights inside the tower building went out.

Their scaffold equipment, hovering near the sixth floor, wouldn't move. It runs on electricity, so they were stuck when the power went out.

While employees inside Tower I and along a wing of the complex were evacuated, Ramos and his partner had to sit tight up against the 19-story building and wait to be rescued.

A transformer in an underground electrical vault had caught fire, said Glen Chandler, a district chief of the Syracuse Fire Department. What sparked the electrical fire is still unknown.

Firefighters responded to South Warren Street between East Onondaga / Madison Street and Harrison Street, roping off the block with yellow tape and emergency vehicles.

After the explosion, large clouds of black smoke began pouring up from the ground-level grates along the street, witnesses said. The black smoke eventually lessened to white plumes and eventually stopped.

Firefighters used a ladder to reach the two window washers to make sure they were OK.

The question was how to get the two men down.

Firefighters brought a portable generator up to the window washers to power the scaffolding, Chandler said. The two were stuck for no more than an hour, he said.

The fire below the building eventually burned itself out.

No one was seriously injured during the incident, Chandler said. National Grid is still surveying the transformer and the other electrical mechanisms inside the underground vault..."

Desert Regional power issues last 32 hours, elective surgeries delayed

 http://www.desertsun.com/story/news/health/2017/05/18/desert-region...
 Elective surgeries in Palm Springs were delayed for a second-consecutive day due to a power outage at Desert Regional Medical Center.

The power outage occurred early Wednesday, hospital spokesman Rich Ramhoff announced Thursday morning. Electricity was restored noon Thursday, a Southern California Edison spokeswoman said.

The hospital had been operating on backup generators. Other hospital services, including its emergency department and trauma center, continued as normal, Ramhoff said.

An unknown number of non-emergency elective surgeries set for Wednesday and Thursday were rescheduled as a precaution, Ramhoff said.

"Certainly rescheduling elective surgeries is an inconvenience for our doctors and our patients," Ramhoff said, "We don't like to see that, but as far as provisions to the community, our generators are prepared for that."

The outage was caused by a transformer problem that only affected the hospital, Ramhoff said.

Desert Regional can run on backup power from its generators for several days, he said.

Southern California Edison crews worked on the outage. The company spokeswoman said the outage occurred around 4 a.m. Wednesday.

4 trapped in elevators after fire causes power outage in Prescott Valley

https://www.dcourier.com/news/2017/may/17/transformer-fire-causes-p...


 A fire in a transformer at the M&I Windows and Doors facility in the 7500 block of East Highway 69 Wednesday morning caused a widespread power outage in Prescott Valley — which trapped four people in elevators.

Over 1,300 customers were initially affected as power went out around 10:30 a.m., APS spokesman Alan Bunnell said.

Traffic lights were out at intersections around town for a brief time.

Elevators at Yavapai Regional Medical Center’s Del E. Webb Outpatient Center and the Yavapai Community Clinic were stuck between floors and Central Arizona Fire crews had to rescue two people from each of them, Division Chief Rick Chase said.

“They were able to use their key to open the outside doors (at the center) — there’s a special device we have — and, luckily, that elevator was only about a foot off the floor, so they just helped the people out.”

The other elevator was “several feet” from the floor, Davis said, and, the two people in it were a little more difficult to extricate, but they got out safely.

In all, the people were trapped in the elevators for about 30 minutes.

Firefighters didn’t put any water on the transformer fire, but waited for an APS crew to arrive, Davis said, and when a small transformer on a nearby pole ignited and caused a small grass fire, they were able to put it out quickly.

The fire was caught on video by Kathy Fitz; see  dCourier.com to view the video.

Within an hour, APS had all but 42 customers back online as a result of re-routing power, Bunnell said, and, by 2:30 p.m., only one customer remained without electricity.

The area affected was from Lake Shore Drive to Fourth Street and Kings Highway to Bravo Lane.
