Major blackout

KL, Selangor, Putrajaya, Johor hit by major blackout, said The Star Online. Yeah. We were affected too. Overheard at the mag shop (Hehe. Office blackout, apa lagi. Go out and shop for a while le :P) Ipoh also being hit. Anyone to confirm?

Now, as of 1330hrs, we are back to work, hoping that there will be NO missing files. Some of my subordinates were busy coding on their programs, functions etc when the blackout attacked. There were warnings though. First, one of the aircond burned. Followed by a two secs blackout. Then, the major one hit. We thought only the office kena, blaming the air-cond lah. Only then we noticed that the whole area was blackout. Then some of my friends SMSed their other friends in Johor, Penang etc. Johor returned the same news.

edit: updated on 1622hrs. Excerpt taken from The Star.
Train services and some handphones lines were down. Traffic lights were also out, causing fears of massive traffic jams.

Dozens of people who were lining up to pay their summonses at the Kuala Lumpur, Ampang, and Bukit Aman traffic police offices were also caught in a limbo when the power went off.

However, the blackout was a temporary one for some as power was restored in some places by 1.30pm, including Ampang, USJ, Sunway and Shah Alam.

When contacted, a TNB spokesman said the company was still investigating the cause of the blackout.

"The blackout is not nationwide and has only affected some areas in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Putrajaya, Negri Sembilan, Malacca and Johor.

"Some places have received power again by 1.30 pm and the restoration of electricity is going on right now.

"We are still investigating what caused the blackout and will update the media as soon as we get further information," he said.
