It's made it on the news in Hampton Roads, anyway.
Some containers of PETN were punctured at the Morehead City port this morning. The bomb squad from Cherry Point Marine base is on its way to start cleaning up. Apparently the stuff is highly explosive; winds seem to be blowing out to sea which would be good for us. The road and bridges from Morehead City into Beaufort are closed, but there is another way home using back roads.
We're fine. Dad's actually the one who told me what was going on first; we had heard many conflicting reports of a car accident on the causeway or a problem with the drawbridge, but Dad heard the real news first.
Here's a link to a local news story.
