My 60 hz clocks in las vegas gained 4minutes and 45 seconds approximately.
At 6pm pacific daylight time I ran grid monitoring program which gets time updates from somewhere in washington state.  It showed the grid frequency at 60.06 hz..
the grid was at 60.06 from 6:00 to 6:15 and mostly likely much earlier than 6pm when I heard the news and looked at the grid frequency.
Power engineers say 60.05hz is where masive power failures woulld prevail.
at around 6:18 frequency was back in tolerance around +.025 hz.

This is most likely to do with massive power outage in southern california, arizona, seen as far as new mexico..
