Hello,

This was a general power cut. The whole of Argentina was without electricity for more than 8 hours. Some towns came back on much later. As far as we understand it also affected Uruguay and the southern parts of Brazil. We are 25 km from the second largest nuclear power plant in Argentina and we were without electricity for more than 10 hours. Clarin and other major newspapers are speculating. Some say it was human error, others say it was sabotage and blame the government. Macri is launching an investigation. This was quite scary and troublesome. Who turned off the switch?

Nelita,
Thank you so much for verifying this reality. We can never know for sure how truthful the media is here in the states.
It is such a coincidence that this happened one day after a major retail franchise store lost it's computer ability for electronic payments for almost one hour. If it was human error, it could also be an intentional test of power system integrity. Any thoughts on who maybe the most likely culprit?
