Driving around Lawrence, MA during the Gas Explosion

Driving around Lawrence, MA in the hours following the massive gas explosions. The video was recorded at approximately 8 p.m., roughly 3 hours after it all went down. Numerous road closures, cops everywhere, quite an experience. It's very dark because the electricity was intentionally turned off to the entire area to try and prevent any further fires or explosions.

According to news reports that I've seen so far, it appears to be over pressurized gas lines serving Lawrence, and North Andover Massachusetts. Columbia Gas is the utility provider.

News reports are saying that there are upwards of 50 fires/explosions

This is a tragic occurrence. I pray for everyone affected by this disaster.

When we make references to things that are "ghetto" we don't mean any harm. We're definitely not entitled snobs. We're both from blue-collar backgrounds. It's just the sense of humor from 10-year friends.
