A gender reveal party shook towns on the New Hampshire-Massachusetts border, sparking fears of an earthquake. A family set off 80 pounds of explosives as part of their gender reveal party at a nearby quarry Tuesday evening around 7 p.m. Police in the area got a bunch of calls from homeowners after the explosion sent shockwaves within a 20-mile radius of the quarry. Upon arrival, officers found the people responsible who owned up to setting off the 80 pounds of explosives which had a strong enough force to crack foundations of homes as far as Massachusetts. Kingston Fire Chief Graham Pellerin said that the fire department responded to a report of a cracked foundation and there were no other signs of damage to the home. Authorities are looking into other reports of cracked foundations.
'The source of the blast was 80 pounds of Tannerite, police said. The family thought the quarry would be the safest spot to light the explosive, which is typically sold over the counter as a target for firearms practice.'https://t.co/ytgPnCAgnH
