looks very serious, workers rumored to be injured.
This is a critical back up generator / transformer ??

An explosion at a substation belonging to New York utility company Consolidated Edison (ConEd) rocked Manhattan's East Village at approximately 9 p.m. on Monday night.
The blast occurred on 14th Street near the bank of the East River and plunged much of lower Manhattan into darkness as Superstorm Sandy battered the city with winds and tidal surges.
yep, all of new york area burned to the ground. those east coast chumps still think earthquakes are so scary???
According to Mayor Bombast the super storm was caused by global warming. If he would shut up there would be that much less polution.
Yes and people being swept away by the water refused to be rescued by non-union rescue volunteers. (partly true).
