Large areas of the Netherlands have been left without electricity. The north of the country has been mainly affected, with the Dutch electricity network operator saying the outage has been caused by a power grid overload.

The capital Amsterdam has been hit, along with the area around Schiphol Airport. Twitter has reported that some hospitals in Amsterdam have been left without power, while the tram and metro networks are also not running in the capital. Thousands of people have been stuck on public transport because the doors will not open as they are controlled electronically.

The outage was caused due to a defect at a substation in Diemen, according to TenneT, the company which is responsible for supplying power in the Netherlands. Staff members are currently on site and are investigating the exact cause.

“Once we know the cause, we will be able to say how long it will take to get power supplies back on line,” a spokesman for the company said.

TenneT has stated that power has been restored to some parts of North Holland, however, significant parts of the region are still without electricity.

All flights to and from Schiphol, Europe’s fourth largest airport, had been were briefly canceled. A spokeswoman said “We are experiencing a lot of problems due to the outage,” with inbound flights redirected to other regional airports.

The airport tweeted that at 10:45am they were able to get some power back from another source and traffic is slowly starting to pass through the airport.

Police chiefs in Amsterdam say they are putting all their officers on the streets because alarm systems are not working, according to the Dutch website ad.nl.

Although the power cuts have caused a great deal of disruption to those living in the north of the Netherlands, people have still managed to show they have a sense of humor.

    This to me seems like some kind of purposeful man-made test in preparation for large scale blackout events. This blackout events will either act as a cover for an economic collapse or as an illusion of attack by foreign military/EMP or even towards the ending (making sure the world has seen the scam on the TV first before hell breaks loose) of a faked staged alien scenario planned which of course is to help finally destroy all religions and beliefs. These events may also be test runs before some natural event happens which we need to counter and understand fully. Finally this may be a total freak error event occurring from a weapons test but we just do not know for sure yet. The elite are sure conditioning to a coming blackout event of big proportions whether that man-made or solar etc who knows.
