Back in the 60s, a single little switch brought down much of the northeast of the US and a large part of Canada. Strangely, in 2003 another one happened that covered pretty much the exactly same area. The latter affected about 55M people from what I was just reading. The 60's one would have as well, but there just weren't as many people to affect at the time.

But, India is the all time winner, with one in 2012 that apparently affected 600M+ people. We barely have enough people in the US to match that if we went for a nation-wide failure.
