Lights flicker, electronics go haywire when Dot Ave. manhole explodes

A manhole on Dorchester Avenue near Bay Street went FOOM into the night. Residents for blocks around had their lights flicker and their electronic devices show their resentment. One resident a couple blocks away reported hearing a loud thud; she thought at first her downstairs neighbor had slammed the door.

Meanwhile, lights went out from Uphams Corner down to the area of Blue Hill Avenue and Quincy Street.
