Cyber Squirrel tracks power outages not caused by trees

Cyber Squirrel provides updates on outages that impact the power grid caused by squirrels, and other animals as well. CyberSquirrel also provides an updated map detailing the squirrel related disruptions by location (including those caused by birds, rats, raccoons, snakes and others – however – no trees – I repeat – no trees – which were systematically destroyed in neighborhoods throughout the DC metro area – purportedly to prevent power outages due to above ground lines that were initially installed up to six decades ago. Ok, back to the squirrels. Cyber Squirrel posts information about outages around the country, and even abroad. And the Cyber Squirrel is apparently anonymous and the message is stick with the facts, not the fear – these outages are not related to human attacks.
