LORAIN POWER OUTAGE

HAPPENING NOW
Lorain – Power was knocked out on the west side of Lorain Wednesday night around 9:20 p.m. after a transformer blew up.

Deacon Bob Dybo of Nativity Church in Lorain said he was stopped at Leavitt Road and Meister Road around 9:20 when he saw the transformer blow up. “It was like a fireworks show right there in front of me.” Dybo said that the explosion shook his car.

Power was out for portions of the west side of Lorain, some have been restored but several traffic lights are still out. Power at Community Health Partners “flickered on and off” but returned almost immediately.

Hey TMC,
Is this in anyway connected to the MVA on Oberlin Ave and the broken pole?
Just curious.

Jon,
It doesn’t appear to be connected to the crash on Oberlin Ave. That crash occurred around 6:30 p.m. and the transformer blew up around 9:30 –

Must have been that electrical fire at the substation the fire department wasn't called on. Haas
