PostSubject: Power Plant Explosion in Connecticut   Sun Feb 07, 2010 6:48 pm

I'm not sure if anyone else has heard about it, but a power plant exploded in Connecticut around 11:30 this morning. coverage of the event has pretty much been the only thing on the news here this afternoon, other than football and basketball stuff. here's a quick article on the explosion that I found on yahoo if anyone is interested in reading it.

Yes, we've heard about it here because we're in Mass. They think it might have been a natural gas leak. Five people are reported dead, 12 injured, but there may have been as many as 100 people on site at the time.

I actually live close enough to the place where the explosion happened that I heard a loud noise outside when it happened. I thought it was something my dad was doing outside because he was working with the tractor, but it wasn't. Some people felt their houses shake and thought it was an earthquake. Later on when we were watching the news, my dad told me that his boss asked him to work near the place where the explosion happened, but he turned down the job because he had work to do at home. thank god that he said no to the job!
