Transformer explosion in SF

This just happened today in SF. Apparently some underground transformers blew up. Nice picture of the carnage, too.

Wow, I had no idea that had banks of gigantic 40 foot tall transformers stored in secret rooms underneath the streets of san francisco. That is pretty weird, you know

So was it an Autobot or a Deceptacon?

Optimus Prime has had a hideous makeover and now looks even more tacky then he did all those years ago. No sign of Galvatron, either, and Soundwave also seems to have been retired...

They've all had hideous makeovers.

I was trying to figure out how this

There was a substation that caught fire in downtown Raleigh about 3 years ago -- we could see it from work. The flames from the cooling oil were taller than the 10 story dormitory over at Shaw University. Really impressive, especially watching it from a darkened & silent office building (no power).
