Police a few blocks away heard the noises, which were attributed to blown underground energy transformers.
Underground transformers apparently blew along Parkwood Drive near Valley Creek Road early Tuesday morning, sounding off several loud booms and waking residents. Officers a few blocks away heard the booms, said Michelle Okada, Public Safety spokeswoman. “It sounds like it was pretty loud,” she said. A resident told Patch there was a bright flash of white light and a “huge explosion” at about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 7.

Residents did report power outages in the area, she said. Like Patch on Facebook | Follow us on Twitter | Sign up for our free newsletter
