Husband and wife and three kids in a station wagon: The quintessential picture of the American family. Only not in this case, in which the family was literally blown to bits and the few remains of the station wagon so twisted and charred it took police several hours to realize it wasn't a mini-van.The explosion that destroyed a family in Essex Monday night was grotesque. Photos and television footage of the blast's effects made folks gasp. One officer likened it to the Chase train wreck a decade ago -- so horrific you had to see it to believe it, he said.

An estimated 2.4 million gallons of sewage overflowed Sunday afternoon into the Back River in Essex, the Department of Public Works said Tuesday in a statement. The waterfront at Rocky Point, Cox's Point and Edgemere Park was posted with overflow notices by Baltimore County. The overflow, largely attributable to heavy rainfall, lasted from about 12:20 p.m. until about 2:00 p.m. A large volume of rain water in the sewer lines increased beyond normal levels the amount of sewage coming into the Back River Wastewater Treatment Plant in Baltimore County, according to the department.
