(KMOV.com) -- An underground explosion rocked a downtown St Louis neighborhood this afternoon.

A fire department spokesman says the the problem was an underground electrical feeder line that blew a manhole cover at Lucas and 17th.

There were reports of shockwaves felt and lights flickering, but no injuries.

An Ameren crew is now making repairs to the damaged manhole cover.
