    I live very close to this area like a matter of two minutes in a car and about fifteen minutes to walk. and we could hear what sounded like a distance train, my sister lives about fifteen minutes away in driving and she called because she heard the same sound. Thank God it wasn’t worse and most people are safe now the clean up.
