Because of the flash at the beginning, the internet first claimed this chaos was caused by lightning. The real story is even cooler than that.

The ‘lightning’ travels down a wire, into the river.

And then, the river immediately goes vertical.

Ka-Boom!

It was footage of engineers putting explosives to good use in Finland.

The weather might have been a tip-off.

The Internet had fun with the excitement, though.
