Massive Blackout in Argentina & Uruguay! Grid Down! Working to Be Restored

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Argentina and Uruguay were scrambling to restore power to millions of people after a massive power failure hit the Argentine grid early on Sunday, Argentina’s Energy Secretariat said.

Energy company Edesur Argentina said it had restored power for 75,000 clients in the greater Buenos Aires area by 10:52 a.m. local time (1352 GMT).

Total recovery was estimated to take a few hours, according to the Energy Secretariat and Edesur.

The massive outage left Buenos Aires dark early this morning, hobbling public transportation, cutting off water supply and crippling phone and internet communications across the city.

Several Argentine provinces were forced to temporarily delay local elections.

The cause of the outage was still unclear as of late morning, but Argentina´s energy agency said in a statement it had begun an investigation. Newsmax

      Don’t mess with this, get a manual transfer switch and install or have it installed in your home(s). Then buy a quality dual fuel generator which uses gas and propane. Gas may not be available in an emergency, propane most likely will be.

      Reliance Controls makes a good manual transfer switch with easy to follow videos of installation, we hired an electrician.

      Champion and Westinghouse sell quality generators but be sure to purchase an Inverter Generator, it will not harm your sensitive electronics. All generators that are not inverter type generators will harm your appliances and other sensitive electronics, so spend the extra money and get an inverter generator. Westinghouse comes with a 3 year warranty, unheard of these days.

      Add extra precautions, put in a whole house surge protector while the electrician is installing your transfer switch, and you should put in surge protectors on your outlets, especially those with sensitive electronics attached. These can be purchased at any store or online.

      Remember, a Joule rating on a surge protector is the number of watts it safely protects, so a surge protector that is 400 joules will only protect up to 400 watts. You’ll want to match the surge protectors you buy with what it’s protecting.
