Just 15 months after Detroit’s Black Out 2013 debacle, spokespeople for the city and DTE Energy confirmed at around 11:00 a.m. local time on Tuesday that most of Detroit’s municipal grid is offline:
- *DETROIT CITES ‘MAJOR CABLE FAILURE’ FOR POWER OUTAGE
- *DETROIT: OUTAGE IS AFFECTING ALL CUSTOMERS ON THE PLD GRID
The outage is preventing power from being delivered to police stations, schools, traffic lights and other city-run facilities and services.
According to Detroit Press Office shortly before noon:
“The city’s public lighting grid suffered a major cable failure that has caused the entire grid to lose power at approximately 10:30 this morning. The outage is affecting all customers on the PLD grid. We have isolated the issue and are working to restore power as soon as possible.”

Let’s see, 15 short months ago there was a power outage. Wanna take bets on how many people realized then that it could happen again and they might want to lay in supplies?
