A blimp associated with NORAD's surveillance of the East Coast that became untethered from its mooring in Maryland is now on the ground and authorities have it secured, Pennsylvania State Police told CNN. The loose JLENS blimp had been in the air over Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, and caused power outages before it came down. There have been no reports of injuries or deaths, but the dragging of the blimp's cable had school leaders taking precautions to protect children as classes began to let out for the day. There are currently about 18,000 without power in the Bloomsburg area, according to Joe Nixon with PPL Electric.
