I just found this vid on RT.

(if its reported here already please remove and if its in the wrong place please move mods lol.. first thread )



Amateur video showing a huge flash at a power station near St. Petersburg has gone viral on YouTube. Authorities say there has been no explosion, and the flash was caused by 'technical malfunctioning' which led to a temporary power blackout. No one was hurt in the incident.



ive never seen an 'technical malfunction' as massive as this and it not precede some kind of disaster




what do you think is it a 'routine problem'? or something else being covered up?

It is interesting, it reminds me of the situation in Texas a few months back. I shall wait to see what others have to say.

here it is
Also it seems there is a little light in the sky before this incident occured, could be image fail issue but is strange.

Just a transformer being blown, my dad was a lineman for 30 years, I use to do some linework also when i was younger.......

Nothing unusual happens from time to time and puts on quite a show, its a real pain if they burn out the pole too!

Things can cause quite a stir in rural areas when they go up......

Especially susceptable during storms

Look out for Arnold Swartsnegger clones, only with better acting skills.

I think it looked a lot more dramatic because it was getting dark at the time. A transformer blowing out makes quite a show!

What i see as being a little strange is no one hits their brakes at the exact moment the flash occurs. After you see brake lights but it also looks like they are coming up to traffic or a stop light. The natural reaction would be to hit the breaks to at least slow down. Does anyone see this happening?

I am not saying it is CGI since it would take enormous amount of time to have the light cover the other objects, have to look at it again to see how much the light cover there is. Is that even possible over composited CGI?

That was one heck of a power glitch!



When transformers blow they create a HUGE amount of light. Almost looks like a nuke from the first angle, but the second shows the transformer blow. Very cool, but no cover up I think, just a transformer blowing. I would of hated to of been standing near that when it went.

I remember several times in the early nineties seeing the whole sky, from horizon to horizon, light up like a light switched on, just flash, it didn't seem like lightning, the weather was clear and calm. I have never seen it since.

Please give examples? what technical malfunctions have you seen and which disasters have they preceded?

Regarding this light show, it's impressive and it doesn't happen too often but it happens, and a bunch of people might have lost power until they replaced the transformer...you could call that a small disaster I guess.

Thx for sharing!

But why people record themselves while driving, I'll never understand.

If that's your example then you don't mean it preceded the disaster, but was concurrent with the disaster. Yes Earthquakes and hurricanes can cause all kinds of damage including damage to electrical systems and lots of light shows can result as a poster mentioned earlier in the thread.

powerlines dont work like that, you have to be grounded in order to complete the circuit and cause the electrocution
