Sunday night an electrical transformer at the corner of Old Orchard Street and East Grand Avenue exploded causing a total black out in Old Orchard Beach. For about an hour the only lights visible at the popular summer destination were the lights from the public safety vehicles blocking traffic.No one was hurt, and CMP got power restored as quickly as they could. You can here the electric sizzle while the transformer is malfunctioning.
