Witnesses say it was like "an atomic bomb went off" when a natural gas pipeline exploded in Kentucky overnight. It happened in Lincoln County and video shows a loud sound followed by a bright light in the distance. Emergency managers are blaming a ruptured gas line. The gas has since been turned off. According to WTSP, about 75 people were evacuated from their homes.

Officials updated the public just as the sun came up in Lincoln County. You can watch the video of that press conference below:
