2 Large Flashes of Light Seen in Riverside,CA 10:15pm 8/28/011

At 10:15pm tonight,I was sitting outside smoking a cigarette(facing East)when right before my eyes I saw what looked like two huge flashes of light on the horizon. My best example of this would be when a really strong hurricane, or gusts of wind knock out the transformers and you see large,green flashes of light. That's basically what I saw(and trust me,we deal with the Santa Ana's out here) one after another, but they weren't green. They were a light bluish hue,and dimmed to white on the outer edges of the flashes. Lasted about 2-4 seconds? One flash right after the other,BAM-BAM (didn't make any noise though)

Hope someone else out there saw it too, I think it was in the direction of Downtown Riverside? Hope that helps!:)
