I live in North Andover and have never been more terrified in my life. We were told to evacuate.
I spent the night in my garage (which was converted to an outside bar years ago. It has a TV and a fridge).

Explosions, fires, sirens and helicopters everywhere. Gridlock traffic with nowhere to go.

It felt like Armageddon

Exhausted . But safe

This is my front yard right now:

Something is seriously off with this story...

Over pressure at the pump station was the explanation I was told...

The thing is, there are so many safeties, regulators and check valves designed specifically to minimize the chances...

This going on at 20+ addresses.

I'm sorry for those nearby, but something stinks about what was told.

I feel the same way. Wonder if we will ever know the truth.
