I don't know where Jane lives, but, I live in a neighboring town where the fires and explosions are happening.  The towns affected are Lawrence, Andover and North Andover, MA.  These towns are in north east MA.  The problem is from over pressurized gas lines with Columbia Gas.  Residential and businesses are affected, people are being told to leave their homes, major roadways shut down, 60-100 fires &/or explosions occuring.  Fire depts.from all over are helping and National Grid is now shutting off electricity to these affected areas.  :-(

@LdyBugz  Thank you so much.  You provided so much more information then the story we saw on the national news.

 

This is just so disturbing.  I know it is a necessity but the pressurized gas lines make me nervous.   In our area we have had two major explosions in the past three years.  Thank goodness there were rural.  No deaths, but one man was burned so badly he will never live a normal life again.

Yes, it's very disturbing!  I feel awful for these people.  They have set up shelters for them and the Red Cross is on scene.  All of the Boston news stations are covering it live and you can get info on their Web pages:  WCVB , https://boston.cbslocal.com/

@cherry  I could be wrong but I think she lives on the cape.   Hope she's not involved.   A  friend has a son in Andover...  will have to call her...

Re: Terrible gas explosion in Boston

@cherry I believe @JaneMarple lives on Cape Cod. 

 

These explosions and fires are horrific and heartbreaking. The gas company was doing work on the lines. They've cut the power to all three towns too and evacuated people.
