Missouri: An Explosion on a Quiet Afternoon


I was working upstairs at my mother's house in a small Missouri town, when whoom! I heard it.

An explosion? A sonic boom? A collapsing sinkhole? Gunfire?

I paused to listen for any follow-up sounds or clues about the source. Nothing.

I descended the stairs and asked my mother if she'd heard it. She allowed as she had, and thought perhaps I'd slammed a door or something.

I went outside the front door and saw neighbors walking toward the south, toward Interstate 70.


Camper explosion in Missouri. August 2016.

A camper in someone's backyard had exploded, evidently from a propane source within. Fortunately, no one was physically injured. But the camper looks like hell.
