Transformer blew up it looks like. The power went out. Does not look like a C4 detonation or explosives for that matter. The smoke would be white=ish.
The black smoke is something burning - the smoke is heavy and moving in a straight upward pattern meaning the particles in the smoke are heavy and
something exploded from the inside out , notice also the mushroom effect - showing an air pressure change which is normal , but is pulls inward
leading to that an enclosed container blew outwards. If the material was on the outside youll see a lot wider smoke pattern and youll notice two smoke
patterns separated in two different directions or showing a noticeable separation between the black / white / grey /red / yellow smoke and suggesting
something caused a puncture and then the material reacted to this puncture and the contents of the smoke are attracted to each other creating two
distinguishable patterns , though they will mix in a few seconds. You will also notice generally that a smoke pattern occurs first , opposite the
black smoke if puncturing a contained object.
There are several ways to tell certain types of explosions apart this was a self contained explosion , meaning the explosives come from within - not
under , on top , or beside it.
Most likely a transformer or facility malfunction with another power related object.
