Exploding manholes cause more problems in Back Bay
At least three manholes along Huntington Ave. exploded this afternoon, sending literal shudders through the nearby 101 Huntington, which has lapsed in and out of electrical service today.
At 3:46, Bonnie O. tweeted:
Why did we just hear and feel an explosion outside from inside 101 Huntington? Fire trucks outside near Marriott.
At NStar's request, Boston firefighters flooded one of the manholes with water. Traffic around the Pru, of course, immediately became a mess - police shut down Huntington and deployed fresh officers to the area to block off roads and try to divert drivers elsewhere.
