US power blackouts leave record numbers in the dark

Hurricane Irene, which cut a swath of destruction from North Carolina to Maine from Aug. 26 to 29, can be blamed for part of that increase: more than six million people experienced power outages related to the storm. Other major blackout events last year included a possible human error that left some four million people across southern California and parts of Arizona without power in September, a late October snowstorm that affected around 1.75 million people along the East Coast, a damaging outbreak of thunderstorms in the Chicago area that affected some 700,000 people and a January winter storm that knocked out power for more than 400,000 electricity customers in Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia.
