India deals with second massive blackout


Following a blackout on Monday that left 300 million without power, India dealt with another massive blackout Tuesday morning that resulted in one of the world’s biggest blackouts ever, according to The Globe and Mail.

The power outage left 600 million people in India without power, stalling traffic, subways, and even stopping electric crematoria, some with bodies half-burnt.

The second in a pattern of massive power outages has raised more questions about India’s dated infrastructure, and the government’s inability to provide sufficient energy for the country’s vast population.
