Transformer explosion lights up New York sky

A transformer explosion at an electric power substation in the New York City borough of Queens lit up the night sky with a bright blue light , mystifying some residents, but officials said no one was injured in the incident.

The blue flashes that briefly lit up the night sky in the Astoria area of Queens, New York, shortly after 9 p.m Eastern time was caused by a power surge and electrical “arching” and sparked a transformer explosion and a small fire. The fire caused scattered outages, stalled some city trains and briefly blacked-out LaGuardia Airport, which is located in Queens, because of a transmission dip. It also caused some flight cancellations and delays, but all power and services have been restored before midnight yesterday.
