…and boom goes the dynamite.
The explosion heard this afternoon throughout Aberdeen and Hoquiam was due to a planned blasting done by Weyerhaeuser.
According to officials, the Section 11 site near Ray Anderson Rd. had planned a blast this afternoon.
Normally, these blasts are not felt or heard so far away from the site, but due to weather conditions, residents as far away as Montesano heard the explosion.
