New York’s Skyline Blue After Transformer Explosion

A transformer explosion at an electric power station in Queens, New York on Thursday illuminated the skies with bright florescent colors.

“The light you have seen throughout the city appear to have been from a transformer explosion at a Con Ed facility in Queens,” the New York Police Department said in an advisory on Twitter to local residents.

“The fire is under control, will update as more info becomes available,” it said.

The New York Police Department’s 114th precinct, which patrols the area, said in a Twitter post that people should avoid the area around the power plant.

Con Edison confirmed there had been a fire at a power substation in Queens, saying on Twitter that it was working with the New York Fire Department and would provide further details later.
