JUST IN: New York, LA, San Francisco Were Just Hit With MASSIVE Power Outages

Massive power outages occurred in major cities across the U.S. on Friday, per Weasel Zippers.

The cities that were hit include San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City.

The first outage occurred in NYC around 7AM, when the power went out at a subway station.

Then, later in the day, several outages occurred at Los Angeles International Airport and numerous other areas throughout the city.

It sounds as though San Francisco’s outage, however, was the most widespread.

Check it out:

A massive power outage in San Francisco caused a blackout Friday morning in neighborhoods across the city, from the Financial District to the Presidio, forcing the closure of businesses, a BART station and a federal courthouse, officials said.

A spokesman for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. said at least 90,000 customers lost power and that there had been a fire at a substation on Larkin Street. It wasn’t immediately clear whether the fire caused the outage, which swept through the city after 9 a.m., or was ignited as a result of the outage.

All of the outages are still under investigation, as authorities work to determine what might have caused them.
