Officials are investigating the cause behind an apparent explosion or eruption on a Rhode Island beach today that forced the beach to be evacuated and left one woman in the hospital.

An explosion was reported at the Salty Brine beach in Narragansett around 11:15 a.m., according to Rayna Maguire, Assistant to the Director of the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management.

The explosion "blew a 50-year-old woman onto the rocks," Maguire told ABC News.

She had been sitting in a chair up against breakwater at the tide line when the sand erupted, said Larry Mouradjian, Associate Director for Rhode Island Natural Resources Management.

She was taken to South County Hospital in unknown condition. Her name was not released and the hospital declined to comment.

So an abandoned copper cable underground gave off hydrogen as it corroded and when it mixed with oxygen that is what gave off the blast. 

 

I wonder why this doesn't happen more often. 

 

I find corroded metal all over my property as I am digging and gardening, I wonder why nothing has exploded yet?

I would guess a lot of things would have to be just right for that to happen. I'm guessing the sand, salt water and the amount of copper would make a difference.
