The cause of a weekend power outage in Muskegon now is known, and it just so happens it was caught on video.
Willard Hall was driving down Apple Avenue around 6:30 a.m. Sunday, May 7, recorded it on his dashcam and posted it to Facebook. It clearly shows a quiet morning when all of a sudden, there's a loud zap and a goose falls from the sky.
This goose is cooked.
Consumers Energy spokesman Roger Morgenstern said the goose hit a 7,200 volt line and tripped a nearby transformer. The outage affected about 4,500 customers for a few hours.
