Just hear what they had to go through today. And one of the residents we spoke to actually had debris fly towards his house. And his house has some damage. And, and, and his car.

There is no estimate of the amount of damage at this time, but I have heard that the damage was enormous, especially for neighboring houses. I’m now inundated with emails from people in the area who also woke up to the boom this morning. And as emergency workers keep clearing the smoke so that it can be seen in the distance, many people are gathering here today. It’s very smoky here. I can still smell it, even from where I stand.
