Power Plant Explosion in CT.
Happened about 45 min. ago. Shook my house on it's foundation. This is going to be big and bad!!!!
Anyone else in the area feel it? How about you Steve? (Beerdart) They're saying as far away as Hamden and Wallingford. It's going to be a catastrophe.

Art, I shit you not. Im in West Haven. I heard a faint rumble in the distance that sounded like thunder and the cat jumped. I wondered what the hell it could have been.
Im prob 20-30 miles away.

NRG’s Middletown Generating Station, situated beside the Connecticut River in the Maromas section of Middletown, CT, is the largest fossil-fueled electric generating plant in the state. Currently the plant produces 770 megawatts (MW) of electricity, enough to power over 600,000 homes. NRG acquired the station from Connecticut Light & Power Company in December 1999. Now, GenConn Energy, a 50-50 joint venture between NRG and The United Illuminating Company, is constructing four 50 megawatt (MW) dual-fueled combustion turbines—enough to power more than 160,000 additional homes—under a 30-year power contract with Connecticut Light & Power Company. Because they are fast-start “peaking” units, they will be used when energy demand is the highest, helping to moderate electricity costs in this transmission-constrained area. NRG expects to break ground in February 2010 and have the new units online by June 2011. Middletown’s power is currently sold to the Independent System Operator – New England (ISO NE).
