    (Express) – New York and Michigan have reportedly been hit with massive power outages as a heatwave across the US continues. Fox News reported 800,000 homes and businesses had been hit after two days of storms. Power is not expected to restored until Tuesday for some after several thousand lines and wires are believed to have been taken out. Thanks to humidity, temperatures felt as hot at 110F (43C). The New York Police Department even tweeted: “Sunday has been canceled.

    US infrastructure is dog shit. The city I live in. I have lost power for longer than 12 hours (last time 36 hours) three times in the last 9 months. Mind you, these were not serious storms.
    Our grid is simply outmoded, overtaxed, and is apparently held together with bailing wire and prayers.
