Squirrel terrorizes transformer – both lose
Warning to squirrels in Hoboken: Stay away from transformers!
Early this morning, a transformer explosion rocked the neighborhood near 8th & Jefferson.
One Hoboken411 reader recounts what happened:
“This is what was left behind early this morning after a 6:30 am transformer blew up at 725 Jefferson Street. I woke up (with a majority of the others in my building) to what sounded like a bomb going off. After almost three hours of Hoboken police, fire trucks and the power company, the conclusion that this squirrel was not only the cause, but also the only casualty (besides the transformer).
The best part is that this is what was left on the street under the transformer as what I can only assume is a warning to all the other innocent squirrels in Hoboken!”
