Cookin’ with gas in Northern Mass

Cities in northern Massachusetts are evacuating after a local company, Columbia Gas, began “upgrading” gas pipelines – and apparently started a pressure surge which has resulted in fire and explosions in 70 to 100 homes. So far.

Here’s a link at the Boston GLOBE which will keep updating with the latest news, including videos, tweets from local fire departments. Several folks injured, hospitalized. One reported death. Gas and electric service has been turned off to the affected area to try to limit further explosions. Everyone has been ordered to evacuate.
