Was The So Cal Edison Power Grid Hacked Today?

Was the South Bay Power Outage Caused by Hackers?

This morning a Southern California power outage occurred on a relatively cool morning.  It was a very large outage for over 100,000 customers in Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Torrance, Gardena, Hawthorne and Inglewood.  

This is unprecedented outage and begs the question of why it was it so large?  The media still has not reported a cause almost 5 hours after the incident.  This makes me suspect that a possible outside source like hackers might have caused the outage.   Socal Edistion should know almost immediately what caused the problem and we still haven't heard anything.  

Here are two incidents found that makes me suspect something like this could have happened. Ukraine power grid hacked in January of 2016 and a group of power grid hackers broke into a Midwest power grid.
