the manna lines are too strong in this subway

Edit: According to this WAMU: Transportation Secretary Says He Almost Ordered Metro Shutdown Last Week, the actual word used was probably "amperage", not "power", and this is just a brain-dead reporter.

ABC news article on DOT Secretary Foxx talking about DC Metro issues:

It is clear to DOT officials who watched a video of one recent incident that there is too much electrical power flowing through the subway system, he said."

"Electrical power"? There are actual words which mean something in this context, we don't need to treat it like magic. When the authorities are talking like a bad urban fantasy novel, I worry.

Current. Too much current flowing through the subway system. The system is carrying too heavy of a load causing a high current draw. This should evident from their monitoring system and alarms should be sounding in every operations office at DC Metro.
