There were HUGE flashes of light in that area around that time. I thought it was lightning... so... maybe it was that and that caused the outtage... OR some transformers or something blew up and that accounted for the flashes. They were SUPER bright flashes that lit up the whole sky... 3 of them. Two were within seconds of each other and another was about half a minute later or so...
