A transformer that exploded at a substation in the Manhattan, New York neighbourhood of Two Bridges reportedly caused buildings to shake last week.

Con Edison, the utility company that manages the substation, is currently investigating the incident while repairs have already begun.

One local resident reported feeling the building shake from the shockwave of the explosion.
