NARRAGANSETT, R.I. (WPRI) — A state owned camera that overlooked Narragansett Bay and the Port of Galilee may have been able to help in two recent incidents in the area, according to the Providence Journal.

The camera was taken down last year after vibrations from a nearby wind turbine station damaged it, and it was never replaced.

A mysterious beach blast on July 11 sent one woman to the hospital after being thrown in the air.

While a series of fires to three fishing boats in the Port of Galilee remains under investigation.
