On December 2008, there was an electric storm in Honolulu that left over 290,000 homes without electricity. The president Barack Obama was also on the island.
The Time magazine reported that the sudden storm caused a panic for which the police of Honolulu and the US Marines send people to protect the first family. Also Hawaii Electric company offered their assistance by sending a portable generator to Obama’s Oahu residence.
The storm caused an outrage shuttering shopping malls and business offices. Also the Hawaii airport had to cancel all the flights. Traffic lights went dark leaving the Honolulu police no chance but to call in all the available officers for duty. The blackout lasted 18 hours in total.
