Where were you when you heard the Danversport explosion, and what was your first thought when you heard it?

Where were you when you heard the Danversport explosion, and what was your first thought when you heard it?



Your Story

I live in Wenham and was woken out of my sleep by a huge bang. I almost fell out of bed. Amy

I received a phone call telling me I should check on my parents that there was an explosion near their house. My parents live at 4 Rainbow Terr. I called them-they were OK but then another explosion happened. I was scared-I needed to get to them. I did get to them and saw that physically they were OK, but the house was damaged. A lot of emotions but 1yr later they are doing OK and the house is repaired.. I am disappointed in your article that you seem to have forgotten the Left side of Water St., the damage they sustained and their emotional toil. Doreen Bedard

in bed and I thought it was Eastern propane that went upm I live on Cottage ave. but when I heard it was that company I wasn't surprized at all, I work for then back in the 80's and they were a shadey company to work for they didn't have ANY safety codes to protect the workers or the people living near the company shame on THEM ! Bob Plante

I was in bed sleeping. I woke up to the sound, and my father telling me it was just thunder and I should return to sleep. I did, but found out the next morning it was a little more than thunder. Sean Hallinan

I was coming onto rt 128 from rt i was driving I saw what appeared to be heat lightening.. it flashed i came closer bout near the split of 128 to 95..there was a large mushroom cloud rising..sorta like the atom bomb...I could see the flames from 128 near the exit for the liberty tree mall..thought it was the old school for the deaf building so drove down to water st to see..the road was just being blocked off.. I did not hear any sound or explosion was all just first thought was just weather related...then with the rising cloud thought it was a bomb...
