It was a transformer blowing near Dos Pueblos High School. SBSO and FD were called out for report of an explosion in the area. Also power went out for about 30 seconds.

I was at my house near Dos Pueblos High at 10:30 last night and I heard no boom or sirens, felt no vibrations, and saw no flash.

I'm near Brandon School and the power went out for maybe a minute -- long enough that I had to reset all the digital clocks.

Power went out at my place in Ellwood - last night was pretty wild - the wind was kicking up. No complaints though - one of my customer's job sites back East had a high of 7 degrees yesterday.

Wind caused a short and blew out a transformer producing the flash. Lights flickered in many places and a few customers lost power briefly.
