Why India Just Suffered the World's Biggest Blackout

India endured the world's largest power failure today (July 31), with a blackout that affected 700 million people, including the nation's capital of New Delhi.

Trains and subway systems stopped, while private businesses and hospitals geared up their generators, the New York Times reported.

Today's blackout followed another large outage yesterday, which affected 350 million people.

Although record-setting in size, the blackout wasn't entirely unexpected.
