Weekend of June 15th and 16th, 2019
This video talks about recent blackouts happening worldwide. South Africa experienced a blackout on June 16th. Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Paraguay, and southern Brazil have also lost electricity.
It is also noted that Target registers had a nationwide outage on June 15th. I have noticed that Target has been in the news lately for many reasons. It has changed its merchandise to include trendy clothes and items. Many brands were taken out, such as Mossimo. Some items that I used to buy are no longer in some Target stores. I think the bigger Target stores still carry them.
I have already noticed many registers malfunctioning at many stores as well as various computer and television glitches for a while now. It might happen once a year.
Blackout first happened in August 2003 in USA and Canada, affecting 50 million people. They also lost water. This blackout started in Cleveland, Ohio by FirstEnergy Corporation mishap.
