I’m away from Vancouver on vacation for one day…
BC Hydro’s site lists 20 outages in Vancouver right now, all either due to “cable fault” or as “under investigation.” although the CBC tells us:
The fire started when underground power lines caught fire and caused an explosion beneath Richards Street, between West Pender and Dunsmuir streets, around 9 a.m. PT.
The explosion blew a manhole cover into the air and filled the business district with smoke, but fire officials said the smoke was not toxic. The fire was extinguished around noon. (Source: CBC)
Yeah, I’d say if the cables are ON FIRE, that’s probably a “cable fault.”
Needless to say, I’m happy to be here right now:
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to lounge by the pool!
