Flashing in the sky....- St. Louis
I live on the east side, not in St. Louis, so if anyone is over there and can see these things, let me know.

We had storms roll through earlier, but they have now passed, and every few minutes there is a flash in the sky to the west(would be over the St. Louis area). The winds are still high, so maybe it's blowing out transformers?

I've seen the flashes 5-6 times in the last 20 minutes, but the clouds are breaking up/gone. They are green looking too, not white like you'd normally see in lightning.

Can anyone else verify this? If it's not lightning, is anyone in St. Louis losing their power?

I will step out and try to catch it on video, but it's friggin freezing outside and I already fell on ice once today(not a good thing with a broken pelvis!ouch!!).

When I saw it, I immediately thought of the transformers blowing in TX, and didn't know if the high winds are causing this. Husband said maybe static in the broken up clouds, but I think that only happens with heat lightning, and it's a different color than that.

So can anyone on the other side of the river or in this area confirm? Thanks!

When transformers blow, the flash is usually bluish or greenish, not white? Does that fit with what you are seeing?

Yes, that's why I was asking about anyone losing power. Not thinking, though, that anyone who's lost power won't be able to answer me. DERP.

I haven't seen anymore since the initial ones, so maybe it was transformers blowing over there. Just seemed odd and wondered if anyone else had seen it.

Ameren is reporting thousands of outages, so I'm sure that's what it was.

St. Louis (KSDK) - Thousands of costumers experienced power outages in counties across the bi-state region Thursday.

Ameren Missouri says high winds knocked out power to more than 49,000 customers. By 6 p.m. power had been restored to around 28,000 customers.

Ameren Illinois says power outages continue on that side of the river. Crews continue to work on restoring power.

At 6 p.m. Ameren Illinois reported there were still a few thousand outages.

High winds and downed trees are being blamed for widespread outages.
 Quoting: [link to www.ksdk.com]


We were out of power for a couple hours a couple hours ago. Saw no flashes of light. Very high winds.
The term derives from the Ancient Greek words, meta, meaning beyond or after, and noia, meaning perception or understanding or mind.

Right on. That's what I was thinking. I know the town to the south of us is down, thank goodness our lines are buried!

Thank you kindly for the info! hf

Re: Flashing in the sky....- St. Louis
I saw a Very Bright white flash when our neighbor's tree fell and took out the power lines in the back yard on Thursday at about 4pm. I noticed a couple other white flashes in the distance over the next couple hours, which I assume was the same...

And here's a GLP-appropriate Bible verse (atheists may read, too):

God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong.

- 1 Corinthians 1:27
