What Really Happened During the 2003 Blackout?

In 2003, one of the most severe power outages in history affected the northeastern US and parts of eastern Canada. This video summarizes the events leading up to and during the blackout.

Errata: (1) A few areas outside of New York and Toronto were without power for more than a day. (2) The graphic showing the outage area includes Quebec, but Quebec is on a separate interconnection that was not significantly affected by the 2003 event. (3) MISO is usually pronounced 'myso,' not 'meeso.' (4) When I said "NERC standards," I should have said "NERC policies." They weren't mandatory until after the 2003 event.
