Sound of an explosion in east Los Gatos; gardener apparently injured

Westhill at Belblossom after explosive sound - police neighbors PGE

Update to this story: at a community meeting in Belwood on March 26, it was revealed that the cause of the blast remains unknown, despite earlier reports that it was due to turpentine on the ground. Residents are very concerned.  Please read about the meeting, and see photos, on the Belwood of Los Gatos blog via this link.

Yesterday at around 2pm, a large, explosive sound rocked the Belwood, Belgatos and Surmont areas of east Los Gatos. The thundering noise sounded to me like a transformer blowing out - but worse (I was walking down Bacigalupi with my dog at the time). Neighbors wondered what caused it: gas explosion, rifle, transformer, or what? Several of us apparently called police.

When I phoned in, I was told that the Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Dept was investigating. They thought that a tree trimmer had hit a power line but weren't sure at that time.
