Mylar Balloons Caused Monrovia Power Outage

City Manager Scott Ochoa reported that mylar balloons whacked the power from parts of Monrovia Thursday ("from Mountain to Myrtle, Lime to Colorado").

Ochoa writes: "They [the balloons] got caught in the lines near the California-Jasmine Avenue neighborhood and caused the transformer to blow. The power lines actually ended up on the ground. Fire and Police units responded immediately; however, we are fortunate that no one was hurt. Mylar balloons - don't buy them. Get your special someone a book, or a card, or savings bond - just no more metallic balloons."
