Eyewitnesses tell WJZ they could hear a large boom and felt the ground shake for at least a four block radius. Debris can be seen scattered in the roadway and there’s rubble where three homes stood.

“I heard a kaboom and I thought it was a car or something and when I came out, I seen the debris and something’s gone, totally gone,” one woman told WJZ’s Paul Gessler.

One man, Dean Jones, told WJZ when he heard the explosion he ran from his home without any shoes. When he arrived at where the explosion was he could hear someone saying “help” from under the rubble.

“It was catastrophic. It was like a bomb, like you watch things in other countries where they have like bombings and things like that,” Jones said. “It was like watching that in real life. Telephone poles split, I mean, houses down the block, broken glass. When I initially got there, I could hear a voice just saying ‘Help,’ it’s crazy. It’s something I don’t ever wanna see ever again; I don’t want to relive it ever again.”

He said he did all he could to help until first responders arrived. He said he smelled smoke and gas.

From Chopper 13, you can see how large the explosion area is and you can see how far the debris spread.

Nearby residents are all out of their homes, sitting in the shade, shaken by what they just experienced. People are wearing masks to protect others from COVID-19, trying to stay safe while helping their neighbors.

At this point, they are awaiting word if they can go back inside their homes. Many don’t know what they’ll find once they go back inside.

Employees at the nearby Applebees told WJZ they could feel the explosion a couple of blocks away.
