I was about an 1/4 of a mile away when the Danversport Explosion occurred. I was rocked out of bed and my first thought was that we were hit by a bomb. Jack Bauer
We live in Georgetown and thought a plane had crashed or that Eastern Propane had blown up Steve
I WAS AT HOME GETTING READY FOR MY SHIFT AT THE HOSPITAL WHEN I HEARD THE BOOM. IT SOUNDED LIKE A HOME MADE BOMB HAD BEEN LIT OFF. IT SHOOK THE CONDO I LIVE IN. WE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT HAD HAPPENED TILL WE CALLED OUR POLICE DEPARTMENT AND THEY TOLD US OF THE INCIDENT IN DANVERS AND THAT IT WAS AN EXPLOSION. SUE
I was at home in bed in Danvers.My Roomate who works in Boston then walked into my bedroom after being woken up and he said to me my god I hope that was not the LNG tanker if it was I'm going to be called into work at Mass General. Steve
Got rocked out of bed a 1/4 mile from explosion. Thought a plane crashed and from our second floor watched the flames shoot up over the tree line. Tim
I was in my house. The sound and feel gives me new definition to the term "earth-shattering". I thought initially it was a gas explosion in the house, then I realized it couldn't be because I was still alive. 2nd thought was a plane crashed very close by. We really did not know what it was but we could see the flames when we went outside. We talked to a few neighbors, and then evacuated very quickly from the area. Ed Sanborn
I was asleep when the explosion occured and my first thought was that an earthquake was taking place. I was very nervous when i awoke and checked on other family members. I turned on the news to get some type of explaination for the loud noise.
