it's a "substation" issue, which just means there was something wrong at the BC Hydro plant. Almost all of Vancouver was out I heard

Power outage

Is there something a person should do to protect the fish if the power goes out for say 8 hours? Will this hurt the fish? Should I get a foot pump and hook up air-lines to all my tanks?

There are some battery operated small air pumps available that will come on automatically in a power failure I believe. Decent for smaller tanks just to keep the flow going so the water stays oxygenated. If you have a lot of tanks or big tanks, you can get a backup power source such as a generator or a backup battery unit.

I had 2 outages today.

One at 10:30 which lasted for 40 minutes and the second at 6:30 for about 20 minutes.

Strange thing is my sister who lives 1/2 a block away (on a different street) is not affected.

Cheers,
Vic

An explosion is usually a transformer so it should be some what isolated I would think, as they can re-route the power.

A few months back that was the case for me any how, after the explosion it only took a few minutes to get back up and running.
