The power is out all across downtown Washington, DC this morning resulting in major commuter delays, traffic accidents, and stranded workers. These problems are being compounded by a pair of probably unrelated fires on DC’s Metro system. Even the White House is running on emergency generator power.
The Washington Post has produced a map of the affected area, above. The scale of the outage is enormous–approximately 40 blocks according to some reports. Every subway line in the city has stations in the affected area.
