When the wind blows, the power goes

Just after 9 PM on Thursday night, residents in the area started reporting power outages.

Also at that time, folks reported hearing booms and seeing flashes in the direction of the Northeast Branch of the library. A look at the Real-Time 911 page showed Engine 38 checking out a “transformer fire” at 3536 NE 70th Street at 9:03 PM.

UPDATE: Power started coming back on in homes about an hour later (here at HQ, 10:09 PM).
