Power outage in India affects 600 Million

A power outage hit the Indian northern and eastern electrical grids earlier today, hitting around 600 million people, that is approximately 20 times the population of canada out of power, and half of India’s population (1.2 billion). This power loss has cut power to business, tech firms, houses, hospitals, to name a few. Without any warning, around 1 pm the power went out, and is believed to be due to a malfunction at a large power plant.  Regions have taken to seeking out alternative energy sources such as hydro power, with local business utilizing backup diesel generators and the like, which have helped keep hospitals and airports in service.
