Yesterday, the street kind of exploded. Around the same place it fell in about a year or two ago.
OK, so it didn't explode. Something underground (a transformer, I believe) exploded/caught on fire.
Of course, several blocks of street were sectioned off, and there were multiple firetrucks/police cars/ambulances. Power was also knocked out for several blocks.
I asked someone what happened, and they said "Some kind of underground explosion"
And of course, in an urban area, when you hear "explosion" (apparently there was smoke, too), and see all the emergency services there at once, you assume the worst. You assume al-qaeda has struck yet again, and OH MY GOD WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE! Or at least I do.
Of course, no such thing happened.
