WATCH: A Minnesota Blizzard Causes Transformer To Explode
While Rochester was able to avoid last weekend's major snowstorm, other parts of Minnesota weren't so lucky. Especially out in Western Minnesota in my old stomping grounds of Crookston!
Crookston, MN resident Anthony Hillukka was returning from a workout at the gym (because even a blizzard doesn't cancel Leg Day) when he saw sparks emitting from the power lines near his apartment building.
And because we thankfully live in 2019, Anthony was able to take out his phone to capture this on video. A few seconds after he started recording, the transformer suddenly explodes! Props to Anthony for realizing that there was more to that transformer than meets the eye.
P.S. This video should also remind everyone to always film in widescreen. WIDESCREEN, people!
