Transformer Explosion Lights Up NYC In Eerie Blue

ABC New York reports:

A transformer exploded at a power plant in Queens Thursday night, lighting up the sky over New York City while causing some flight delays and scattered power outages.

The power outages affected operations at LaGuardia Airport. There was a total ground stop at the airport for about a half hour before power was restored and flights resumed with some delays and cancellations.

New Yorkers reported seeing massive blue lights in the city following the explosion and took to social media to share photos and videos.
