Two million people in California, Arizona and Mexico are without power according to the BBC. Though no reason is given for the outage, there is a lot of description of the general chaos that would accompany a blackout as massive. Reminds me of the Northeast Blackout of 2003, although to me it is remembered for the possibility of staying in Japan for another week. It was not to be. Power was back on and my flight home went on schedule. Hopefully everyone in California, Arizona and Mexico gets power back on soon.
