I was there with my dad and mom, I was 19 at the time.We watched this happen from an area a little farther down from this parking area. Still got showered with pieces of yuk. We were living in Newport at the time. And being curious, my Dad took us down there to see the fireworks. Raining whale everywhere, cars hit with 50 lb pieces and crunched.
I almost forgot about this, as those I have told this to, only thought it was one of my fishtales.
Thanks for bringing back a good memory.
