At least four people are dead and many others injured following an explosion at a quarry in Cul de Sac.
Reports are that a container exploded after 5 p.m. The cause of the explosion is not yet clear.
The first report came in at 5:23 p.m. from a resident who lives in a nearby community.
“Loudest explosion ever…. They must have used dynamite. Everybody came out; miles away and my house shook” the resident said.
She added: “OMG. Still shaking. That must be illegal.”
Several other persons mistook the explosion for an earthquake.
The quarry is owned by Rayneau Construction.
