Lightning Strike Takes Out Transformer

The following video highlights the effect lightning strikes can have on the power grid. A lightning strike occurs in the far distance causing lightning voltages and currents to travel down the power lines. Eventually the lightning finds a weak point and takes out a nearby power pole transformer. What an explosion!

Now you know why your lights go out during thunderstorm season.
