Explosion at Compressor Station in Washington County, PA

When an explosion at a compressor station or gas well occurs, everyone does their best to deal with the emergency.  However, for the nearby residents, there is usually a period of time, hours, a day, when they live in fear.  They don't know what is happening until someone comes knocking at their door.  In this case, Stephanie Hallowich and her husband have had to go somewhere safe because their two young children were having nosebleeds and headaches even before this blast occurred.  They want to sell their home.  Any buyers out there?
