Utility Error Blamed for L.A. Blackout Several workers who were installing an automated transmission system hooked up the wrong wires, according to Ron Deaton, general manager of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. "They connected it to another line that was not expecting that much electricity," he said. No injuries were reported. When it happened the entire floor yelled "Oh!" because all of our computers went dead. We thought it was just our building at first but no. . . Rather glad it was a Homer Simpson moment and not something more diabolical.
