BREAKING: Massachusetts towns ROCKED by 20 MASSIVE explosions - three towns EVACUATED
Residents of all three towns who use Columbia Gas have been told to leave their houses immediately as has anyone else who smells gas.
Columbia Gas is currently working to depressurise its gas lines but this will take some time.
Massachusetts State Police released a statement saying: “Numerous evacuations of neighbourhoods where there are gas orders are underway.
Police Chief Joseph Solomon claimed there are so many fires “you can’t even see the sky”.
The Mayor of Lawrence, Massachusetts, has said the explosions were caused by “over-pressured gas valves.”
