I heard the original call on the Cromwell LTR system ( talkgroup 1-05-179 ) from here in Milford (I have it recorded too) and a little over a minute later I heard the blast from inside my house. I am on Long Island Sound in Milford so I guess the sound came right down the water.
I would never believe it if someone told me they heard it that far away!

How did you hear the call before the blast?

And as far as the count of injuries etc. I was on scene doing some volunteer work and hear several different things from several different people (Clergy, Plant Workers, ETC.) So at this point, There is way too much confusion to get an exact number.

I was scanning the Cromwell system by coincidence because I programmed several trunked systems in my BCD396XT and I was also trying out a new program which logs the scanner audio and the radio information at the same time (scanner recorded pro). I heard the call and at the time of course didn't know how big it would become. I heard and felt the blast here a short time later, but again at the time didn't know it was related.
I attached an audio clip
