A gender reveal party at Torromeo quarry was discovered to be the source of an explosion in New Hampshire this week which created shockwaves felt in multiple towns. Officers in Kingston, a town not far from the Massachusetts border, received reports of a loud explosion on Tuesday evening around 7pm. They responded to Torromeo quarry (pictured) where they found people who acknowledged they were holding a gender reveal party with explosives. The force of the explosion led some to speculate that the rumblings had been caused by an earthquake, though this has now been proven untrue.
