What would make Four transformers blow? Someone hack the SCADA systems/ Suxnet? Or just plain ol electrical problems—maybe its copper thieves, eh?!

Green and red... airplane navagation lights? Aurora? Info on Space weather does not seem to support aurora. Transformers blowing up usually purplish. If not spoof? What?

you can see transformer after transformer blow as a tornado cruises through almost any urban area.

Ain't no thang ~ on the other hand, this looks to be a major distribution transformer station ~ so it'd have several banks that could blow under overload conditions.

Thought they fixed this problem with those supercapacity capacitors

We are having major wind here in Ga too. I am so on edge here- surrounded by 100+ year old oak trees. The house is creaking.

Going to be a long night here. I feel for y’all in Annapolis. Take care and be safe. And locked and loaded too, I might add.

” you can see transformer after transformer blow as a tornado cruises through almost any urban area. “

Actually, what you’re seeing are ‘line slaps’ and the resulting arcs when a couple of phase lines touch, usually on the slack spans that aren’t pulled taut (tight) ...

It’s too early for any of this to be “Mayan connected”. They are so accurate that they predicted something 26,000 years in advance. I doubt they’d be off by a few hours.

Police say BGE Glen Burnie substation blew; power out in much of Annapolis. Multiple small fires at downed wires in area. Annapolis mall is dark-reports of looting. Large power outage leaves customers in the dark from Crownsville to Annapolis.

There are more than that; there are some places that have a 1/2 hour shift ... it ain’t universal to just opt for a “1 hr” window ...

Reports of some kind of debris falling into the bay? Not surprising, I guess.
