|The explosion was captured on video|
by many eagle-eyed New Norfolk people.
Local residents have shared videos of the incident online, showing the moment a transformer exploded on a power pole next to the rowing club in Rocks Rd.
The pole caught fire at around 7pm, taking out the power supply to about 1632 properties at Black Hills, Lawitta, Magra and New Norfolk North.
|The electrical equipment on the pole |
suddenly glowed very brightly just before
exploding next to the rowing club.
TasNetworks thanked customers for their patience and many commentators on social media appreciated the work that was being done to restore supply on one of the coldest nights of the year.
