    Major Blackout Hits U.S., Canada
    Aug. 14, 2003

    A power outage has struck New York and other cities in the northeastern U.S. and Canada.

    There's a major power outage in New York City, affecting areas from Manhattan to Long Island and to the north. The buildings affected include the United Nations and New York Stock Exchange, along with Kennedy and LaGuardia airports.

    A New York emergency management official says he has ``no idea how extensive it is.''

    Other cities in the dark include Detroit, Cleveland and Toledo. And power is out in parts of Canada, including Toronto and throughout Ontario.

    Don't think it is terrorists but a problem in Niagara power station

    Montreal seems OK

    OH NO!!!

    They are saying it is not a terrorist attack and could be the got hot here suddenly...went from 80 to 90's overnight. Suddenly everyone cranked up the air....

    If it hit Cleveland, it will hit me.....

    Turn down your air conditionaires. I want to remain on-line!

    They are saying it started in New York and is a huge grid that is carrying over into all these other cities!!!
