dark power

of ''Raw'' suffered a blackout. Spotlights were the only lights running in the house, thus the opening match (between Lita (Amy Dumas) and Candice Michelle) was contested in the dark. Power in the presentation was later restored. Another similar moment happened back on May 26, 1996 in Florence, South Carolina for WWF In Your House 8: Beware of Dog, when a major thunderstorm hit the Florence Civic Center causing major chaos for the PPV. That Tuesday, Beware of Dog (In Your House 8: Beware of Dog), returned to North Charleston, South Carolina to finish out three matches that were not shown because of the lost power feed. The 1958 Oklahoma City Sit-ins The first organized lunch-counter sit-in for the purpose of integrating segregated establishments began in July 1958 in Wichita, Kansas at Dockum Drugs, a store in the old Rexall chain. In early August the drugstore became integrated. A few weeks later on August 19, 1958 in Oklahoma City a nationally recognized sit-in at the Katz Drug Store lunch counter occurred. The Oklahoma City Sit-in Movement was led by NAACP Youth Council leader Clara Luper, a local high school teacher, and young local students, including Luper's eight-year old daughter, who suggested the Sit-in be held. The group quickly desegregated the Katz Drug Store lunch counters. It took several more years, but she and the students, using the tactic, integrated all of Oklahoma City's eating establishments. Today, in downtown Wichita, Kansas, stands a statue depicting a waitress at a counter serving people honors this pioneering sit-in. The 1960 Greensboro and Nashville Sit-ins Following the Oklahoma City sit-ins, the tactic of non-violent student sit-ins spread. The Greensboro Sit-In (Greensboro Sit-Ins) at a Woolworth's (F.W. Woolworth Company) in Greensboro, North Carolina, on February 1, 1960 launched a wave of anti-segregation sit-ins across the South and opened a national awareness of the depth of segregation in the nation. First Southern Sit-in, Greensboro NC ~ Civil Rights Movement Veterans Within weeks, sit-in campaigns had begun in nearly a dozen cities, primarily targeting Woolworth's and S. H. Kress (S. H. Kress & Co.) and other stores of other national chains.

Oklahoma City

'''Oklahoma City''' is the capital and largest city of the state (U.S. state) of Oklahoma. The county seat of Oklahoma County (Oklahoma County, Oklahoma), and the Oklahoma City-Shawnee (Shawnee, Oklahoma) Combined Statistical Area had a population of 1,390,835 residents, making it Oklahoma's largest metropolitan area. Oklahoma City's city limits extend into Canadian (Canadian County, Oklahoma), Cleveland (Cleveland County, Oklahoma), and Pottawatomie (Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma) counties, though much of those areas outside of the core Oklahoma County area are suburban or rural (watershed (Drainage basin)). The city ranks as the eighth-largest city in the United States by land area (List of United States cities by area) (including consolidated city-counties (Consolidated city–county); it is the second-largest city in the United States by land area whose government is not consolidated with that of a county).

Oklahoma City features one of the largest livestock markets in the world. Knapp, Adam. Stockyards City district at About.com (Retrieved April 29, 2010) Oil, natural gas, petroleum products and related industries are the largest sector of the local economy. The city is situated in the middle of an active oil field and oil derricks dot the capitol grounds. The federal government (Federal government of the United States) employs large numbers of workers at Tinker Air Force Base and the United States Department of Transportation's Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center (these two sites house several offices of the Federal Aviation Administration and the Transportation Department's Enterprise Service Center, respectively).

Oklahoma City is on the I-35 Corridor as one of the primary travel corridors into neighboring Texas and Mexico. Located in the Frontier Country (Central Oklahoma) region of the state, the city's northeast section lies in an ecological region known as the Cross Timbers. The city was founded during the Land Run of 1889, and grew to a population of over 10,000 within hours of its founding. The city was the scene of the April 19, 1995 bombing (Oklahoma City bombing) of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, in which 168 people died. It was the deadliest terror attack in the history of the United States until the attacks of September 11, 2001, and remains the deadliest act of domestic terrorism (Domestic terrorism in the United States) in U.S. history.

Since the time weather records (List of weather records) have been kept, Oklahoma City has been struck by nine strong tornadoes, eight F EF4s and one F5.
