EXPLOSION CUTS POWER AT O'HARE

EXPLOSION CUTS POWER AT O’HARE AIRPORT: Chicago police say a transformer between terminals two and three at O’Hare Airport exploded at shortly after 12:00 PM on a hot Chicago Monday. Doesn’t sound like it’s terrorist-related–just the opposite, as CBS reports, “ComEd spokewoman Meg Amato says that it appears an O’Hare contractor may have dug into electrical equipment underground that belongs to O’Hare. ComEd is standing by to assist in powering up the terminals.”

But still, seeing the words “explosion” and “O’Hare” in the same headline is more than a little troubling sounding.
