This is the sizzling power line. Toronto Hydro has a zillion of these, and can't do anything. We have power because our transformer is energized, but the line is smoking. The fire dept came and roped it off.
When they fix the line, the whole street will be off again.
If you have a good imagination, you can see the smoke in the upper right.
My favourite house that breached the underground river got flooded again.
ps. once the contractors showed up, the power was off for hours, since it looked like a lot of insulators were cracked.
