Mysterious lights in the sky seen after Mexico’s huge earthquake
“These phenomena are well-documented because of so many security cameras running day and night now,” says Friedemann Freund at NASA’s Ames Research Center.
Glowing globes, and other phenomena
Earthquake lights are electric discharges that come out of the ground and can rise up to 200 metres in the air, says Freund. Lights are sometimes observed in the days and hours leading up to an earthquake, and at other times during or after it. But how they work is still mysterious.

I'd say that the lights are electrical transformers. I have seen the same in severe storms. Just my opinion.
I am sure that energy could be picked up by high power lines too and cause a similar effect as they have with solar activity.
Did i say no transformers blew up?

Just compare the city lights at the beginning of the video, and with each flash of lights, more areas of the city get darker.

This same phenomena occurred last year in the 7.8 Kaikoura earthquake here in NZ. This video was filmed in Wellington looking towards the hill line and then out to sea.
