Edit: I've never seen a power surge like that before. Dude films it as it goes by
I think when the sub stations detect a sudden increase in load they auto trip and cut power. Then they try to "clear the short" by sending a low power
surge down the line and "blast" it clear. It could be tree branches or ice, maybe. Thats what this looked like. Usually it happens a lot quicker that
that. Weird the way it travelled along the lead(s).
Might have been two lines fuzed together by ice, but I am not a lineman. Maybe one will come by and explain it.
