Electrical Explosions Wreak Havoc In Midtown Atlanta

Explosions in the large underground transformers along Peachtree Street sent people running today in Midtown.

The transformers are located under manhole grates in the sidewalks along the busy street. A surge in power blew the transformers causing loud explosions and smoke rising from the sidewalk. No one was injured and thankfully this all happened after visitors from Superbowl 53 had left.

Video of the explosions began making the rounds on social media. I would've been panicked!
