After becoming arguably the hottest news story in New England back in April, the 'reverberations' of the Kingston NH gender reveal explosion have now been heard around the world.

For those of you that may have been living under a rock back on April 20th, chances are you probably still felt the effects of the detonation of 80 pounds of Tannerite at the local quarry in Kingston NH.

This was due to a very ambitious attempt at a gender reveal party that was orchestrated to create a giant blue cloud of chalk signifying that 'It's A Boy!'

The resulting explosion rocked the surrounding neighborhood and could be heard in excess of 10 miles away.

Over this past weekend, audio was released from the 911 calls that came in from residents that heard the tremendous blast and, judging from their accents alone, you can easily confirm that they are authentic.

After a quick search online, I was shocked that this story has made it all the way across the pond!

I have spent the past ten minutes reading this Daily Mail report using my trademark horrible British accent.

You can get the vibe from the report that it's author feels much safer in the original Hampshire, and doesn't intend on visiting the 'New' one anytime soon.

I think that my favorite quote on this whole situation was put forth by our own Governor Chris Sununu, who quipped during an exclusive Shark Morning Show interview,  "Ugh, this is just the kind of thing you'd expect to see in Florida, not New Hampshire".

I for one, could not be prouder that it's now a legitimate International news story!

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
