Default 22 Hour electrical blackout

Our Power just came back on at 910Pm after 22 hours of no power we lost most of the food in our refer and that which was saved had to be cooked and eaten so it would not spoil.

the Electric co admitted they had no idea what the problem was but were searching a 100 sq mile area for the problem. they found it in the jungle between the prison colony and Luzviminda about 45 minute drive from where we live.

the problem is the area of the Black out is all on one grid. the grid should be separated into four or five grids so it does affect such a large area when one line has a problem.

anyone with electric company experience is welcome to help them plan the next few years to up grade their system right now they have no one with enough experience.
