Beach Blast Possible Natural Event

Rhode Island officials are trying to determine whether a small explosion on a Narragansett beach was an unusual natural event.  The explosion at Salty Brine State Beach Saturday morning sent Kathleen Danise of Connecticut to the hospital for treatment of cracked ribs and other injuries.  The beach was evacuated, but there is no evidence an explosive device was involved.  Officials are now treating the blast as a possible natural event from a ground disturbance of some kind.
