I'd think it's a huge confusion with the Chicken Festival going on too!

My friend said he was at Cumberland Valley at the front of the store and you could feel the explosion where he was at AND that things were falling from the ceiling. Another post said that it was a vehicle on the outside of the building. If that was true I don't see how it would've affected the ceiling tiles inside the building.

some of my friends who work at wal-mart said it was a truck outside of the tire and lube center that was carrying propane and ammunition exploded. I do not know if it was a wal-mart truck or someones vehicle...she said no word on if anyone was hurt just yet.

Scanner did say something about propane and ammunition awhile ago, but I didn't get the full story they were saying about it. I know the police were saying to call the Dog Patch to see if they sold a 100 lb tank earlier today and find out what the name of the person that bought it was.

I heard the same as Genuine did that there was a car by the tire and lube section outside that had live ammunition. I heard it from my apartment and I live over in pepper hill. And I just now checked the WYMT Mountain News site and it said the same thing... minus the propane tank.
