    The blackout occurred Thursday. Not sure the current status of the power, although the article says that 20% of the power had already been returned and the rest was soon to follow (article filed at approx. 3pm Thurs.):


    Colombia has about 42.5 million people, or around 1/7th the size of the USA's population. Staggering to think what a similar power outage in America would bring.

    Um, not to be a prick, but we did have a huge blackout....


    does it affect our lives? sure? We can't use computers, our TVs, or ACs, but you know the creature comford will soon come back. If its an extended blackout, then we have problems.

    I think there was another blackout that affected New York in 1965.....nine months later, hospital maternity wards were rather busy.

    Great call, BB. That's not being a prick - that's a great catch. :)

    Apparently 'only' 80% of the country suffered from the 3-hour blackout:
