Explosion (blown transformer?) at 5:45 AM Friday


  1. Anyone else hear a loud explosion at 5:45 Friday morning near the Ferry Terminal? It was a very sharp noise - not any low rumble or anything - and sounded a lot like a transformer blowing. No power outage afterwards, though, and no sirens, so I'm a little mystified. This is probably the third one of these we've heard in the last year, all very similar (time of day, type of noise, etc.), so I'm hoping maybe someone knows what they are. Fireworks aren't out of the realm of possibility, but seem unlikely at that time of day.

  2. I have e-mail from one person at 41st and Donovan who heard it. First boom in a couple weeks. Still no solution to the mystery. - TR

  3. I was the emailer Tracy posted posted above.
    I definitely heard it. My wife remembers recent booms at the same time of day. Could be the construction project down by the terminal.

  4. Haven't heard one of these for a while, but just heard another very similar sounding one at 5:37 tonight. Still near the Ferry Terminal, everything else just the same. Anyone else hear it? Any ideas what it is?
