UPDATE (10:14 p.m.)--Tens of thousands of homes throughout Anne Arundel County are without electricity Thursday night after unexplained blue and green lights filled the skyline just before 9 p.m.

According to Baltimore Gas and Electric's (BGE) Twitter account, the company lost service to two main feeder lines into the Annapolis service area at approximately 9 p.m.

The outages seem to be concentrated in the greater Annapolis region, but lights flickered in other communities including Severn, Odenton, Crofton and Bowie.

"We have no working incidents right now," said Lt. Keith Hamilton of the Anne Arundel County Fire Department. Firefighters and paramedics are responding to multiple alarms from Crownsville and Annapolis though, Hamilton said.

"I've never seen anything like this complete loss of power," said Annapiols Mayor Josh Cohen.

Says a Massive power outage plunges Annapolis into dark.

I will add that there are probably some people freaking out over right now if they tie this into an unnatural event.

Hillarious.... last part of the above sourced article:


Annapolis Mayor Josh Cohen kept his sense of humor during the outage, posting this message on Twitter: "Stay calm and collected. It's not the Mayan apocalypse. I need to get the Market House reopened before the world ends."

Maybe someone was having one heck of an end of the world rave party with those flood light things that can light up the sky when there is low lying clouds. Low lying clouds are very reflective. Sometimes just a police car, fire truck or other vehicles can light up the sky like that.

Annapolis weather here:
forecast page



Moderate rain will continue across central and southern Maryland through the late evening hours. Through 11pm...expect around one tenth inch additional rainfall.
Coastal Flood Advisory in effect until 3 PM EST Friday...
High wind watch in effect from Saturday morning through Saturday afternoon...



So, I would go with electrical/transformer issue.

It's started, it's the age of the transformers, they're too fecking old.

"It's Happening!" Before I even clicked on the thread I knew that was hogwash. I don't think a power station going out constitutes the apocalypse. Nice way to reel in viewers though.

I know there are Alot of storms going on right now, Annapolis where?? Didn't look like there was Ice or anything. Transformers go like that. But I'd have to venture to say that was A line of tranformers, and or sub stations. Very cool light show indeed. Don't want to be up close to a transformer blowing. Have one on up in the back yard, one time it blew (out of 3 times, a tree was the reason) I almost hit the floor, It shook the house for a second.
