NH Towns Rattled By ‘God-Awful Blast’ – It Was a Gender Reveal Explosion
What ever happened to the good ol' cigars with pink or blue bands for girls or boys?
NBC Boston reported that several neighborhoods in several different southern New Hampshire towns thought that there was an earthquake or something that was loud and obnoxious. But it wasn't anything nature did. Kingston police say the blast Tuesday night was from a family using explosives to tell everyone if it's a boy or a girl! The blast, with the explosive Tannerite, was used at Torromeo Industries - a quarry.
People in Kingston said they'd never heard anything like it before! They told NBC Boston:
It was earth-shaking.
...god-awful blast, It knocked pictures off our walls.
it shook houses and had people calling 911! As far south as the Merrimack Valley felt it and wondered what was happening! Meteorologists quickly said it was NOT an earthquake. But it did knock picutres off some walls!
One person said that it cracked the foundation of a neighbor's house! But police investigating says that it looks like everything was legal. Tannerite is legal (it is?) and they had permission to be on the Torromeo Industries properties. They are looking into property damage and if charges could be pressed. Kingston is small town and most people say...too small for this.
Oh, by the way, the police saw the gender reveal video and it’s a boy.
