Disruption around Schuman

Question

Does anyone know what happened this afternoon around Schuman? At about 2:20pm all the power in the whole area went off. There was smoke coming out of the Metro system vents. The whole European Parliament was evacuated, and there were Police helicoptors swarming above, and lots of sirens on the ground.

A transformer on Rue Wiertz caught fire and resulted in a massive power cut. It seems it may last until tomorrow.
