The Hartford Courant has the best coverage of this story.

One of the videos shows an interview with a resident who lived across 
the river; he said he got a phone call this week saying that they were 
going to purge the lines on Sunday morning.  He said they did the same 
thing last week.

Some good coverage here...

Quoting Ralph Stuart :

>> An explosion at a power plant being built in Middletown ,Connecticut 
>> caused several injuries and fatalities.
> From the first paragraph:
> MIDDLETOWN, Conn. ? An explosion blew apart a power plant under 
> construction as workers purged natural gas lines Sunday, killing 
> multiple people and injuring at least 14 in a blast that shook homes 
> for miles, officials said.
> I believe that purging of natural gas lines was what the Chemical 
> Safety Board was concerned with in the ConAgra explosion...
