Explosion

4:30 a.m. - Call from Vinnie - explosions across the river from the Point. Message said house rocked harder than from the storm. I missed the call and am trying to reach him back.

Update: 5:10 am - Haven't reached Vinnie. CNN has a "breaking news" ticker running now, saying the explosions are "where the railroad cars are housed" around Chartres St.

UPDATE: 5:20 am - Got through to the neighborhood. Julie and Patrick and neighbors are fine. They tell me that others are just not answering phones right now.

    I just heard that Nagin told the survivors at the convention center to walk across the bridge and try to survive on the west bank. Does anyone know anything about this? Have people arrived in our neighborhood yet?
