When the British Museum was robbed, no one in London knew. One o’ clock in the afternoon brought the rainstorm. It barely took any time at all for the streets to flood, forcing the citizens into arrest in their homes. All emergency services were exhausted; panic attacks, electrical fires, illness, injury, and looting had made sure of that.
To make matters worse, the transformers for the several blocks on either side of the museum all simultaneously blew, and London was plunged into darkness. Of course, at the time, it had only been an inconvenience; no one’s mind worried for the preservation of the priceless artifacts in the museum until much later.
