Transformer explosion sees Philly streets covered with foam

USA, Pennsylvania; Up to 3,000 residents of Philadelphia remained without power after a transformer near a downtown electrical facility blew up on Saturday.

While the incident left many off the grid, some locals have recorded a rather bizarre aftermath of the incident, reports RT.

Namely, images posted to social media reveal unusual scenes from Lombard and Juniper Street, which were covered with snow-white foam after the incident occurred.

Media reports have indicated that the flurry of foam was the result of a hazmat situation, which was also confirmed by a tweet from a Philadelphia Police Department Chief Inspector Joe Sullivan, tweeting that the foam was triggered by an explosion at the electrical facility.
