Oh, we could only hope…White House, State Department Lose Power Due To Major Outages

“WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — The White House and State Department lost power Tuesday afternoon due to a major power outage across the nation’s capital and parts of Maryland.

The power went out at the White House for nearly 10 seconds while the State Department conducted its press briefing in the dark. The Justice Department’s power also went down.

The power outage stretched to the University of Maryland’s campus in College Park.”

“Washington Post reporter Aaron Davis reports that Homeland Security officials believe an explosion at a SMECO power facility in southern Maryland causes the outages. A SMECO spokesperson could not confirm nor deny the report to WNEW.”
