AM: Megaload Knocks Out Power

Here, you see activity around the Imperial Oil test module before it departed from the Port of Lewiston in Lewiston. Later, the megaload module, which is 250 feet long, 30 feet tall, 24 feet wide and weighs almost 500,000 pounds, hit a power line, knocking out power to two small towns and delaying traffic for one hour. Betsy Russell reports the story below. (AP Photo/Lewiston Tribune, Kyle Mills)

Question: Are you having second thoughts about the megaloads?
