California has literally turned into a third-world nation, not only do they have medieval diseases running rampant in their major urban centers but now they can’t even guarantee their citizens will have electricity in their homes.
Two California utilities are warning almost a million customers that starting Wednesday at Midnight; they will start turning power off in 34 counties throughout California.
Because the state has been so mismanaged over the last couple of decades by liberal politicians, the utility companies can no longer guarantee that their power lines can withstand a windstorm, thus they will be voluntarily shutting down hundreds of miles of power lines throughout the state to avoid triggering wildfires during a windstorm over the next week.
You really can’t make this shit up!
Apparently, California utilities can no longer withstand 20 – 30 mph winds. The power shutdowns are expected to start in northern areas of California soon after midnight Wednesday, PG&E officials said and will occur in stages in so-called danger areas during the day.
Of course, mentally ill liberals refuse to admit they are the ones who caused the infrastructure problems, and instead are blaming…
wait for it…
Yep, you guessed it, CLIMATE CHANGE!
Life on a rapidly heating planet: power could be shut off in 30 of California;’s 58 counties for up to 5 days so as not to touch off forest fires due to ‘dry conditions, very low humidity and gusting winds.’https://t.co/A1isj8elzf— Bill McKibben (@billmckibben) October 8, 2019
Never mind the fact that California’s infrastructure is falling apart, and for decades Californians have had to deal with rolling blackouts. Nope, 20-30 mph winds are now caused by climate change and are somehow powerful enough to take down the states power grid because of climate change…
Prepare for Up to 7 Days without Power!
San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo warned residents and business
in east and south San Jose that they should prepare to be without power for up to seven days.

Liberalism at it’s finest…
Grocery stores are already starting to run low on supplies, but these images from Oakland really sum up the brainpower of many in the state. Ahead of a prolonged POWER OUTAGE, many grocery stores frozen and refrigerated sections have been stripped bare! Not sure how these geniuses plan on keeping all that frozen food good for 7 days, but hey at least they are trying to be prepared…
Empty shelves at West Oakland Safeway & Pak ‘N Save. Frozen and refrigerated sections are cleared out.— KTVU (@KTVU) October 9, 2019
