Utility companies are still in the dark
about the minor glitch that caused a
MASSIVE problem.



(SOT MARIA DAVIS/MOTHER 233430): "THE


STREETS AREN'T SAFE - THEY HAVE NO
POWER, THERE'S NO TRAFFIC LIGHTS,
THERE'S NOTHING."



Officials blame an equipment
malfunction at this Miami substation
for sparking a power surge that shut
down 2 nuclear reactors south of the
city.



Miami Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and
Monroe counties - all the way down to
Key West - went dark in a chain
reaction that rolled through EIGHT
other power plants up and down the
state.



(MOS 190945): "IT'S A LITTLE SCARY -
YOU THINK THE WORST."



Traffic got twisted, schools closed,
and office workers were stranded....It
turned out to be more of an
inconvenience than anything...even if
not everyone minded.



(MOS SCHOOL-GIRL 183000): "US STUDENTS
ARE VERY HAPPY...WE JUST SKIPPED A
LOTTA LOTTA WORK."



(Gwen Belton/Stand-Up)


The shut-down of the nuclear plants
made everybody a little uneasy. But
authorities say the systems reacted
just as they should.



(SOT CHARLES CASTRO/ACTING DEPUTY


REGIONAL ADMINISTRATOR, NUCLEAR
REGULATORY COMMISSION): "THE NUCLEAR
PLANT IS DESIGNED TO WITHSTAND AN EVENT
LIKE THIS AND THE SYSTEMS OPERATED AS
DESIGNED, SO THERE WAS NO RISK TO THE
PUBLIC."





Power executives can't say what caused
the initial problem but they insist


it's not the kind of issue that should
have led to such wide-spread blackouts.





And while government officials praised
the response--





(SOT CHARLIE CRIST/FLORIDA GOVERNOR


5302): "WHAT TODAY PROVED IS THAT OUR
UTILITIES ARE UP TO THE TASK."





They still have to wonder....as summer
approaches and the demand for energy
spikes.....what they will have to do to
keep the juice on in Florida.

snow showers and a gusty northwest
wind. A strong fetch of cold air and
moisture off the Great Lakes will
create heavy snowfall in the higher

SOUND UP - ARE WE FIRED UP



But the candidates are working
overtime.



Voters in Ohio and Texas go to the
polls in less than a week.. and last
night


they got their last side-by-side look
at Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.



The New York Senator entered the debate
knowing her candidacy is on the line..



CLINTON 21:18:00 I ALWAYS GET THE FIRST
QUESTION, I AM HAPPY TO TAKE IT



Working to stop her rival's momentum
she referenced a late-night comedy skit


portraying the media as going easy on
the Illinois Senator.



CLINTON SOT: 21:18:39 IF ANYONE SAW SNL


WE SHOULD ASK BARACK IF HE IS


COMFORTABLE AND NEEDS A PILLOW



Facing two must-win primary contests..
Clinton traded accusations with Obama


over campaign tactics.



CLINTON SOT: 21:05:56 SENATOR OBAMA HAS


CONSISTENTLY SAID I WOULD FORCE PEOPLE


TO HAVE HEALTH CARE WHETHER THEY CAN
AFFORD IT OR NOT



OBAMA SOT 21:09:02 HER CAMPAIGN HAS


CONSTANTLY SENT OUT NEGATIVE ATTACKS///



Both candidates tried to highlight
differences on health care and free
trade..


but on Iraq - Clinton sought to close
the gap.



CLINTON 22:26:02 ALTHOUGH MY IRAQ VOTE
WAS SINCERE I WOULD NEVER VOTE THAT WAY


AGAIN



Obama used the issue to counter
criticism he's not ready to lead.



OBAMA: SHE WAS READY TO GIVE IN TO

ISSUE



The Democratic candidates will spend
more time in Ohio today.. fighting for


every last vote.

Utility companies are still in the dark
about the minor glitch that caused a
MASSIVE problem.



(SOT MARIA DAVIS/MOTHER 233430): "THE


STREETS AREN'T SAFE - THEY HAVE NO
POWER, THERE'S NO TRAFFIC LIGHTS,
THERE'S NOTHING."



Officials blame an equipment
malfunction at this Miami substation
for sparking a power surge that shut
down 2 nuclear reactors south of the
city.



Miami Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and
Monroe counties - all the way down to
Key West - went dark in a chain
reaction that rolled through EIGHT
other power plants up and down the
state.



(MOS 190945): "IT'S A LITTLE SCARY -
YOU THINK THE WORST."



Traffic got twisted, schools closed,
and office workers were stranded....It
turned out to be more of an
inconvenience than anything...even if
not everyone minded.



(MOS SCHOOL-GIRL 183000): "US STUDENTS
ARE VERY HAPPY...WE JUST SKIPPED A
LOTTA LOTTA WORK."



(Gwen Belton/Stand-Up)


The shut-down of the nuclear plants
made everybody a little uneasy. But
authorities say the systems reacted
just as they should.



(SOT CHARLES CASTRO/ACTING DEPUTY


REGIONAL ADMINISTRATOR, NUCLEAR
REGULATORY COMMISSION): "THE NUCLEAR
PLANT IS DESIGNED TO WITHSTAND AN EVENT
LIKE THIS AND THE SYSTEMS OPERATED AS
DESIGNED, SO THERE WAS NO RISK TO THE
PUBLIC."





Power executives can't say what caused
the initial problem but they insist
it's not the kind of issue that should
have led to such wide-spread blackouts.





And while government officials praised
the response--





(SOT CHARLIE CRIST/FLORIDA GOVERNOR


5302): "WHAT TODAY PROVED IS THAT OUR
UTILITIES ARE UP TO THE TASK."





They still have to wonder....as summer
approaches and the demand for energy
spikes.....what they will have to do to
keep the juice on in Florida.

WX PRO << Good morning, I'm meteorologist Leo
Hirsbrunner in the SkyTracker7 Forecast LEO TOSS STRAIGHT TO COMMERCIAL Center. Mostly cloudy today with a few


snow showers and a gusty northwest COMM wind. A strong fetch of cold air and
moisture off the Great Lakes will
create heavy snowfall in the higher
elevations above 3,000 feet in West
Virginia and the Mountains of Virginia.
Amounts over 6 inches may fall
throughout the day Wednesday.
Visibility will also be reduced with
blowing and drifting snow. Skies clear
some late Wednesday with very windy
conditions. Temperatures will also be
considerably colder, with highs only in
the upper 30s. Thursday is sunny and
cool with highs near 40. Late Friday,
we'll increase the chance of showers. A
few may linger into early Saturday
morning. Currently, the first weekend
of March calls for partly sunny skies,
with a few showers early Saturday
morning. Highs near 50. For weather
