ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- Witnesses shooting cell phone video say shockwaves from the BP gas station explosion on SR 16 could be felt a mile away.
Considering Tiffany Edwards lives right across the street from the gas station, her experience was a little more up close and very personal.
"I hadn't been out of the shower 10 minutes, I was still wet," she said. "And that's when I heard a loud kaboom, a big explosion."
So she ran to the door in her towel to see what was going on.
"And a fireman runs by and is yelling, 'Get out of the house.'"
She had no time to grab her purse, or a suitcase.
"We had no time to do anything," she said.
She didn't even have time to throw on a shirt. She says she grabbed a sheet off the floor, piled her kids in the car and took off for a friends house in Deltona.
"All I had when I got there was my sheet," she said laughing, "I drove straight there with my sheet on."
