Power restored after transformer explosions

Posted: Updated:

The power is back on in Cumberland County after several transformer explosions knocked out electricity for thousands of customers.

It happened shortly before 7 p.m. Tuesday. The explosions took down power lines and shut off traffic lights.

One of the explosions happened near Arch and Simpson Streets in Mechanicsburg.  It's unclear what caused them.

At one point, more than 1,200 customers in Mechanicsburg and Silver Spring Township had no power.
