Thanks to a heads up by the chaps in #mobitopia, The Washington Post:
NEW YORK – A massive power outage swept across swaths of the eastern United States and Canada on Thursday, leaving sections of New York City, Detroit, Cleveland and Toronto without electricity, witnesses said.
Film at 11, but this definately doesn’t strike me as a good thing, regardless of why it is happening.
Similar coverage can be had at CNN.
BBC News is providing better coverage than stateside news outlets, as usual.
