Here's What One of the Manhole Cover Explosions in Downtown Cleveland Last Night Sounded Like

Thanks to a rolling dash cam from YouTube user Buddy Love, you too can now know exactly what one of the manhole cover explosions — this one near West 3rd and St. Clair — sounded like last night.

"What the fuck was that," he says after the explosion, which is the only reasonable response to what legitimately sounds like a bomb. (It happens right after the 1:27 mark.)

Fire crews were investigating the cause of last night's explosions, one of which occurred near the zoo and sent a manhole cover flying onto the hood and windshield of a car that was left looking like this.
