strikes and other disruptions affecting transportation and communication (e.g. postal, phone, mass transit, trucking, airline, shipping, dock and warehouse workers, teachers and all manner of media). Weather both terrestrial and solar (including geomagnetic storms) can play a part in the kind of breakdowns described here, but human effort (and sometimes malicious action) is a part of the mix as well.

More than 160 counties and cities in central China suffered blackouts and water shortages, including Chenzhou, in Hunan province; a city of four million that had no power or water for more than a week.
