As Hurricane Sandy hit the northeastern United States last night, large swathes of New York and New Jersey lost power. This video, which captured an explosion at a Con Edison plant, would most likely explain why. If you wait through the middle, another explosion happens at the end. It was probably terrifying for the people that didn’t have power since they couldn’t quickly hop on the Internet and look up what just happened. Thankfully, the storm is gone, and now we all just have to wait for the clean-up.
