@gb_psr Don't have time to watch the video? Slides from Oct 2018's Weymouth Local Emergency Planning Committee Meeting that included LEPC’s from Weymouth, Quincy, Braintree, Hingham & State Undersecretary of Homeland Security McMurray start here:
@gb_psr This blast area seems conservative & is likely based government numbers. Prior pipeline explosions have extended more than this, & compressor explosions'd be far worse. This IR doesn't take into account other infrastructure that could be ignited frm compressor explosion.

THREAD: We haven't forgotten about folks in the Merrimack Valley in the wake of the #MVGasFires, and we're sure you haven't either. Here's an update on what's happening:
It's been a month since the gas fires and explosions that rocked Lawrence, Andover, and North Andover. Most people who were affected are back home. But few are back to normal. wgbh.org/news/local-new…
Despite an emergency loan program, the shutdown drove many local businesses to the brink: wgbh.org/news/local-new…

#mapoli Yes. Dismissive and plainly expressing his disinterest in the severity of the gas compressor proposal: smallest plot of land, most densely populated site EVER proposed in the US. And bc site’s on coast, MA CZM has *final* say! It’s NOT just a federal issue! #MApoli
For anyone who thinks Weymouth is overreacting. Watch this meeting w/ LEPC’s from Weymouth, Quincy, Braintree, Hingham & State Undersecretary of Homeland Security McMurray. Compressor proposal is a big fecking problem.

UPDATE from @nathanpboston re: effort to get induction cooktops to those in the Merrimack Valley. The GoFundMe will be kept open as it's imperative that people have a way to take care of basic household tasks. 100% of the money is going to cooktops and shipping charges 1/
#mapoli
Nathan is also still looking for new or used pots and pans (with lids, hopefully) that can be used with the cooktops. You can test a pot by holding a magnet near the bottom. If the magnet sticks, it's good for induction! 2/ #mapoli

From Nathan: "Hi all! We've blown past our $5k goal and are now at $6,158! [edit: now it's $6449!] Now our two biggest challenges: securing inventory, and connecting with households. As of today, 5 homes are able to cook that weren't" 3/ #mapoli

(1) Thread: Merrimack Valley gas line explosions and fires.

There's a lot of panic and misinformation being reported. I'm getting my info from @MassStatePolice & the state fire marshal.

NBC Boston live coverage: nbcboston.com/news/local/Mul…
(2) From the above story. Authorities are not asking residents to turn off their home's gas supply, they are just saying get out of the building asap.

Importantly, using a cell phone can ignite gas if it's built up in the room.
