Any idea what that loud boom around 3:30 am was? Crimes & Incidents, posted by Robin Holbrook, a resident of the Adobe-Meadows neighborhood, on Sep 22, 2007 at 10:17 am
I was woken up by a loud boom early this morning and the power was briefly interrupted (all the clocks started blinking). Anyone have any idea what it was? (I live in Adobe Meadows neighborhood near Bayshore frontage road and it sounded like it came from that direction.)

There was a power outage around 3:30AM. Parts of the street lighting downtown were out for a while as reported to CPAU from PAPD. They reported it as lightning, but I saw no flash or heard any thunder. It may had been the first rains causing HV to arc over on dusty insulators.
PAPD was dispatched to several homes because of false alarms cause by the power blink.
We had about 30 seconds of power out here. No problem for me as my home floats across lead acid. ;-)

Don't know about the time, but we heard one really loud clap of thunder and the rain on the roof of our eichler was noisy. We also heard many helicopter and heavy aircraft noise last night. Very noisy evening!!
