Maybe A Coincidence. Maybe Not. Huge Power Outage As Solar Flare "Glances" Earth

This may well be nothing more than coincidence, but just yesterday the National Weather Service announced a huge solar flare would deal a glancing blow to Earth. And today, tens of thousands of people were without power after a major outage knocked out electricity from Southern California to the Arizona border on Thursday afternoon.

Outages were reported across San Diego County and all the way to Yuma, Ariz. Residents in San Clemente in Orange County, north of San Diego, also said their lights were out.

So far, the power officials have no clue what caused this huge power failure. We'll see...
