On May 4th, 1988 hundreds of people living in Henderson felt the ground move and heard windows shatter. There was a shockwave of 3.5 on the Richter scale. But it wasn't an earthquake. It was an explosion equal to one kiloton of TNT -- it was the explosion at the PEPCON plant. The plant produced ammonium perchlorate, or rocket fuel, that exploded when a fire broke out. We'll hear stories from people who were there. And we want to hear from you, if you were living in the valley on that disastrous day.
