Has anyone heard of a big Power outage in the North east?
I just got a call from one of my tech's in the GBLX bldg in Newark, NJ
at 1085 raymond and they are telling him that they lost power!
But I also got a call from AT&T in NY that they also lost Power!

CNN is reporting a sizable power outage affecting New York City,
Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, Toronto, and Ottawa. The subways have
stopped in Manhattan and folks are walking in the streets. A
transformer is on fire on 14th street.

I just spoke on the phone with a friend in Ann Arbor, and he confirmed
the complete power outage there.
