So these "mylar balloons" were able to take down 4k customers?
These balloons are the ones that are sold by any gorcery store. They usuallly have print and foil/silver backing to them. So why wasn't power re-routed? Surge protector on power lines to minimize blackout to a block radius?
Was the proper equipment in place and maintained?
These are some questions I would like to see answered because these blackouts are happening way to often.
