    Power Outage in Midtown Manhatten

    This just occurred.
    Several subway stations are dark, and several reports of people stuck in elevators.
    The cause is not known at this time.

    Is this the EMP from a Russian or North Korean missile exploded in the upper atmosphere? LOL

    they got power up yet? and didn't hear anything about this on the news
    It happened before, it can happen again.
    It happened there, it can happen here.
    It happened to that person, it can happen to you.
    No one is immune to the trials and tribulations of life.
