Boston's response to the pipe explosion and potential release of asbestos could also be negatively affected by a number of inconvenient circumstances for the city. The explosion occurred blocks from the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, where Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney had just finished delivering his concession speech.
Additionally, only one week after being hit by stormy weather caused by Superstorm Sandy that caused damage across the region, Boston is in line to get hit by a nor'easter on Wednesday and Thursday. Any bad weather that hits the area could not only worsen any asbestos issues that were caused by the explosion, but also impede workers from quickly containing any dangerous asbestos products.
Just blocks from the convention center!
