One of history's worst blackouts darkened cities, delayed trains, and forced many to use backup generators for two days. A barber in Kolkata (Calcutta) cuts a customer's hair by candlelight during Tuesday's blackout.The cause of this week's vast power outages in India is not immediately clear.
An electrical short circuit sparked the fire that gutted this train car and killed 32 people in the Indian city of Nellore on Monday.The duration and geographic extent of this week's power outage were unprecedented in India. Indians walk past an electric generator for sale in a market in New Delhi, India, on Tuesday, during the second day of this week's blackouts.Power outages in India are commonplace, and residents accept them as a part of daily life. Muslim girls study by candlelight inside a religious school on the outskirts of New Delhi during Monday's massive power outage.One day after power was largely restored in India following a massive power grid failure, the country was hit by a second, even larger outage on Tuesday.
An employee at a power station near New Delhi scales an electric pylon on June 8.Arup Roy Choudhury, chairperson of the state-run NTPC, India's largest power producer, has blamed the government for chronic fuel shortages that have worsened the country's energy crisis and delayed steps to increase power generation, according to The New York Times. In a first for arthropods, the spiny animal kept its brood tethered to its body as it swam Eartha€™s seas 430 million years ago. The National Weather Service issued a flood advisory Tuesday for much of the Bay Area, including Alameda County, while around 700 Berkeley residents are without power in West Berkeley. Authorities advise using caution when driving in heavy rain, leaving sufficient room between cars and being alert to flooded areas.
I’m sorry that some people are experiencing challenges because of the rain but I am very happy its raining. No, PGE can’t consistently keep the lights on any more when it rains or, often, get them back on in a reasonable amount of time. It is possible to bike in the rain without getting soaked if you wear a full rain suit that is breathable (rain pants and jacket) and galoshes. It is, certainly, a poorly run private-sector company, but the government doesn’t have much to do with that.

Maybe you have some facts that I haven’t heard to back up your ideology, which I have heard many times. We can make a case that only transmission lines are a natural monopoly, while power generation can be more competitive. Actually the power company in the Sacramento area is a publically owned public utility (fancy that!) and has always had much lower rates than PGE and in recent years better service.
In the 1920s Wall Street spent enormous sums on activities both legal and illegal to break down and prevent such publicly owned utilities and install privately owned government-franchised utilities which have ever since been a primary source of Wall Street investor plunder. PG&E is the largest electricity provider in California because it spend much of the 19th century purchasing smaller producers and building out the grid, financed largely by stock offerings.
Maybe the Bay Area is different, and PG&E is not granted monopoly status in providing transmission lines.
I removed a large rock from the Highway 24 exit to Fish Ranch about an hour ago; also saw small rocks on Grizzly Peak, but no place to safely stop to move them off the road. A Rufford car wash business was left high and dry today after power cuts hit part of the village. Big Kev's car wash on Liverpool Rd had to turn numerous customers away after the power went off abruptly, according to valeter Billy Gilmour (right). Lee Maxwell, area manager for Electricity North West, said: We had a planned outage taking place this morning affecting 17 properties at around 9am in Rufford. However, during the planned outage an underground cable fault occurred, affecting more than 400 properties at 9.55am. Engineers are working onsite to fix the cable fault and the planned outage will be rearranged for the near future, and we will contact all affected customers when the work has been rescheduled. Electricity went off, mobile phones stopped working and traffic lights failed as a power outage hit Southport this evening.

Mr Pugh was hugely critical of Sefton Council's planning committee, which had heard the initial application.
Andrew Brown is the editor of the Southport Visiter, Midweek Visiter, Formby Times, Ormskirk Advertiser, Skelmersdale Advertiser, and the Crosby Herald. POLICE are hunting the drone pilot responsible for an electricity blackout across West Hollywood, California this week.
Energy experts warn that such occurrences could become more likelya€”the country's per capita energy consumption is expected to double by 2020.
But archaeologists are increasingly confronted with demands to let past generations rest in peace. This photo, looking north on Shattuck Avenue toward Los Angeles Avenue, was taken by Colleen Neff.
If Southern California Edison or Elon Musk or the Sultan of Brunei wanted to drop $100 billion to build out a competing grid in the Bay Area, there’s nothing stopping them. PG&E had to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection because CPUC refused to allow the utility to raise rates to cover its incompetent business practices. Apparently a drone was following a car for a reality show and hit the power line crossing sunset at larrabee. Theya€™ve got natural lighting through top windows all around the sports all though so we were able to carry on with classes.
