Was there an explosion in Hawaii

A co-worker told me that there was an explosion in Hawaii and that it was all over the news. Is there any truth to this? Or is he just yanking my chain.

Mahalo!

They did launch a test missile from Barking Sands on Kauai a couple days ago.

This was on the news the past couple of days.

That may be what he is referring to.

There was an explosion today in West Virginia that has been on the news much of the day.

A gas station blew up & killed several people.
