Went to a job once at a Shell Servo where a truck had knocked down a high voltage pole on P Hills Rd. The bare 11kv wiring fell onto 415, then into the Servo, two of the three meters blown off the board.
The driveway was built over sloping ground, Voltage then got into the copper water and compressed air piping.

What was also underneath were all the fuel tanks, copper piping  was non existent, had sprayed itself over the 3 inch gal fill pipes. Luckily didn’t go bang!!!
Total rewrite of the buildings,new  pumps etc, etc.

Good luck with your tv , etc.

Bultaco Metralla, Matador MK 5, Montadero mk2, El Bandido model 18,plus lots of bits and two Honda XR's 250,350.

That sounds very lucky.... that one, very lucky :o
So loud when it happens. Spectacular releasse of energy when it goes down.


We got off light with this one. In the last one it was bigger than Texas, it blew over 150 meter boxes to peices... It didn't just fire the light globes out of my ceiling it actually fired the baynet socket fittings out of the gyprock. Power GPOs out of walls, fried everything. Took them over four days to get us up and running again that time, without meters for weeks 8) . They rebuilt all our boxes with smart meters etc ...only 6 hours out on this one...

A magpie blew that big transformer in the first pic 15 years ago.
 He had a nice warm buzzy nest up in the top of it. Used to think your flirting with danger mate.... anyway what happened, he had found a nice piece of wire and took it home to adorn his nest... kablamo! Feathers over a hundred foot radius  ;D
