We had a power surge due to the power company working on a line outside our house. The power went off and when it came back on it kicked off four circuit breakers. This was the first time in 28 years living here that the breakers have kicked off following a power outage. We have a Fios power box that burned out in the basement, a microwave oven which was on its own line, two surge protector power strips in a bedroom on its own line, a lcd tv with a Fios top box and a x-box360, plus three hdmi cords in another bedroom with its own line(the tv still runs but its hdmi ports are shot and it won't display HD any more). The refrigerator and washer and some lights were off when the breaker went off, but when I switched the breakers back on they turned on with no visible ill effects. I'm going through my home owners insurance to try and get something back, but I want to see about not having a repeat performance. The lcd tv, Fios top box and x-box weren't on a surge protector, but would one really have stopped the surge? What I mean is, how about one plugged into another? Two, inline. I don't have room in my electric panel for the surge breakers, and I'm not sure that I care for the power meter device the power company puts on. Any ideas?
