Southern California Air Traffic Shut Down

It looks like all air traffic in and out of southern California is stopped as a power outage at the main radar facility occurred.

Tell me how this is possible.

A power outage at a radar facility Tuesday cut communications and brought incoming and outgoing flights in Southern California to a standstill, a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman said.
“We lost everything. We lost all power to phone lines, computers, everything,” said Allen Kenitzer, a regional spokesman for the FAA.
The outage at the Los Angeles Air Route Traffic Control Center was reported around 6 p.m., Kenitzer said, and the cause was not known.
The center is located in the high desert near Palmdale. via ABC News
