Hoover Dam

Post by hikeaz »

At approx. 10 a.m. PDT, the A5 transformer at Hoover Dam caught fire & was extinguished by USBofR Hoover fire brigade at approx. 10:30am PDT. There are no injuries to visitors/employees. There is no risk to the power grid. Power is still being generated from the powerhouse.

For now, Vladimir Putin, or Russian hackers, have not been blamed for the incident.
