We were recently contacted by Mr. Frank Yukso, who recorded an interview with Mr. Jim Horan, one of the early members of the South Amboy First Aid Squad about his experiences. Mr. Horan was on scene for the Powder Pier Explosion in 1950 as well as the SS Moro Castle and Hindenburg disasters. The interview with Mr. Horan is just one of several by local emergency responders of the time on Mr. Yukso’s video “South Amboy’s Night to Remember – The Powder Pier Explosion of 1950″.
In addition to “South Amboy’s Night to Remember,” Mr. Yukso also created a documentary on “The Morgan Explosion in 1918″. Both documentaries are available from Visionary Video Studios in Milltown; more information can be found on their website: http://www.visionaryvideostudios.com/frankyuskofilms.html.
