The details are still coming in on this.  Somebody deliberately brought down two high voltage electrical towers, dropping power for several MIlwaukee suburbs and our airport, Mitchel International.

As I get more details, I will post.  It could be terrorism, or just juveniles causing trouble.

They are now reporting that the FBI is on the scene, and that power has been restored to the airport.

A news conference is scheduled for 10:00, although those usually run late.

We are in the Central time zone.  So far not much more info.  They're investigating.  It happened about 5:00.  17,000 people were without power, 8,00 still without.

The Oak Creek Police Cheif (one of our suburbs near the airport) is on TV now

They have not been able to get close yet, the electric company has not properly secured the lines yet (which is odd, since it has been 5 hours).  

One tower fell into another---They don't know why yet.

They just said something about a candidate being in town, and leaving an hour before the incident.  Then I found this online:

QUOTE
The wife of Democratic Presidential hopeful John Edwards stopped by a fundraiser in La Crosse on Saturday. Edwards attended the annual chili cookoff at the Oktoberfest Grounds. She sampled some of the selections and shook plenty of hands. After the cookoff she headed downtown to meet and greet people on the streets and check out some of the shops. Edwards focused on one main message, every vote counts. Her husband John Edwards was not far away, he was campaigning in Milwaukee on Saturday.


Could this be connected?  I don't know.

Still watching for more news, but I think once we hit 10:30 that will be all the local news for the night.

It's 10:15 here now.  I found this on our local newspaper's website:  JSOnline

It seems like they are behind on reporting the story though.

The FBI is no confirming that it was not an accident.  They still will not say if it was terrorism or jandalism.

So, what happened in Milwakee? Probably another 'isolated incident' and we won't hear any more about it. Trust me. cool.gif

If this was a terrorist attack it has got to be the most worthless attack I've ever heard of. Some people were inconvenienced they'll fix it end of story. Sounds like vandalism to me.

The latest CIA intelligence shows that their next dastardly plot is to drive very sloiwly on the expressway in hopes of slightly inconveniencing americans by making them late for work.


Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.
