A massive gas explosion was reported in Lawrence, Massachusetts where as many as 20 homes have been impacted. Some homes have already caught fire and a nearby school is in the area but it has been evacuated.
“If you smell gas, leave the area and do not turn on or off lights. Do not open or close doors, and do not use a cell or landline phone,” Columbia Gas said in a statement.
“Multiple house fires at homes with Gas service. If you have gas service to your house or business please exit the building until further notice,” tweeted North Andover Police.

Florida Republicans concoct a new scheme to make it harder for students to vote
Florida Republicans do not want to make voting easy for college students — a demographic that leans heavily Democratic.
Former GOP Secretary of State Ken Detzner, an appointee of Gov. Rick Scott, took that to the extreme in 2014, with an order banning county election officials from setting up any early voting sites on college campuses. Last year, following a lawsuit by the League of Women Voters, federal District Judge Mark Walker struck down that order as an unconstitutional burden on students' voting rights. As a result, some 60,000 people were able to vote early on 11 college campuses in Florida in 2018.
WATCH: Trump supporter arrested for smacking reporter’s phone outside Orlando rally
A Trump supporter was arrested during an altercation with a reporter and another man outside the president's Orlando campaign rally.
Video recorded by an Orlando Sentinel reporter shows a man wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat and another man outside the Amway Center, where President Donald Trump officially kicked off his 2020 campaign.
The two men appear to be arguing with one another, although the second man also appears to be angry about something that took place inside the arena, when the man wearing the Trump hat notices the reporter recording them with a phone.
The real threat to America isn’t Trump’s ‘deep state’ — it’s Trump’s corrupt state: Robert Reich
Trump has been ramping up his “Deep State” rhetoric again. He’s back to blaming a cabal of bureaucrats, FBI and CIA agents, Democrats, and “enemies of the people” in the mainstream media, for conspiring to remove him from office in order to allow the denizens of foreign shi*tholes to overrun America.
But with each passing day it’s becoming clearer that the real threat to America isn’t Trump’s Deep State. It’s Trump’s Corrupt State.
Not since Warren G. Harding’s sordid administration have as many grifters, crooks and cronies occupied high positions in Washington.
