Two explosions were heard in Onancock Thursday morning. At around 11 a.m. they were reported.  According to a witness the explosions were traced to electrical sparks from an exposed power cable. ANEC responded to the scene.

According to a firefighter, because of the way the cables are built the chance of the sparks resulting in a fire are unlikely.  There was a brief power interruption in the area until the power was restored.  No real damage or injuries were reported.
