One untrimmed tree in Ohio that snapped a power line caused so much havoc.
On this day in 2003 (August 14th), that one tree snapped a transmission line, leading to the power being shut off for much of Northeastern North America, including Ottawa. The power outage caused traffic chaos, lots of food being thrown out due to lack of refrigeration and a lot of finger pointing on both sides of the border.
But there were some pretty cool stories that came from the blackout. Do you remember where you were? Check out the video below from a CBC report in 2013.
