A massive power outage struck San Francisco Friday morning, causing traffic snarls all over the city and sowing confusion.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the outage was widespread, hitting several city blocks, “from the Financial District to the Presidio, forcing the closure of businesses, a BART station, cable car service and a federal courthouse.”

Local power officials at Pacific Gas and Electric Co. said the massive loss of power affected at least 95,000 customers, adding that there had been a fire at a substation located at the junction of Larkin and Eddy streets. Officials did not immediately identify the blaze as the cause of the power loss, and there were no early reports that the outage or the fire may have been the result of foul play, such as hacking.

The city’s fire department, meanwhile, had been called to more than 100 incidents, including 20 or so involving people stuck in elevators. Responding to calls was made more difficult by the fact that traffic lights were out in the affected region, jamming traffic.

In addition to the sudden loss of power in San Francisco, other major U.S. cities suffered power outages as well.

As reported by The Daily Sheeple, the power went out in the Big Apple before 6 a.m. local time at the 7th Ave. and 53rd St. subway station, which then caused a chain reaction of power loss throughout the remainder of the city’s subway system. It took the city’s Metro Transit Authority until 11:30 a.m. to get emergency generators online; delays are still causing chaos throughout the city.

Another power outage hit the city of Los Angeles, including the LA International Airport.

What’s going on? Are these outages in major U.S. cities merely a coincidence? Things like this seldom are.
