Fox 4 received a flood of phone calls Saturday night around 10pm. Viewers reported power surges, and flashes of different colored lights in the sky over the water.
Callers from Southwest Cape Coral and Fort Myers Beach said they saw the lights flash in the sky for about forty seconds.
Some viewers even reported power surges in their homes, and trouble starting their cars along with the lights. Dispatchers with the Cape Coral Police Department didn't know the source of the lights.
LCEC spokersperson Karen Ryan said 5,000 customers on Sanibel Island are without power late this evening, but she did not know if the outage was related to the phenonmenom. LCEC is looking into it. Crews are on scene working to correct the outage, which could have been caused by fallen trees. We are working to find out more information.
RealUfos would like to hear from anyone from Southwest Cape Coral - please respond to this post if you saw the lights the other day. Power surges can be caused be solar activity or ufos and this means this may be something other than just a normal meteor shower
