Word was that a neighbor was walking his dog along Outpost and watched as a manhole cover exploded upward followed by a fireball. Sounded intresting enough, so I walked around the block to see if there was any corroborating evidence, and sure enough the DWP guys were there taking a peek. One guy was pointing what I suspect was either a temperature gauge or gas detector into a manhole. When I came in for a closer look, I saw what appeared to be burn marks around the hole (as seen in the pic from my camera phone).
Alas, the DWP website isn’t currently working – possibly too much traffic from others looking to find out exactly what happened.
Anyone else encounter a power outage on this hot late summer day?
