The Salem News and the Danvers Herald have put together multimedia packages to mark the anniversary of the Danversport explosion.

Some highlights from the News include audio of the 911 calls, before-and-after photos of the homes destroyed in the blast, slide shows and lots of stories. The front page from last year, with the headline ‘WE’RE ALL ALIVE,’ has gone interactive — click anywhere and you’ll get the story. There’s also an interactive map (above). When you roll your mouse over a property, a box pops up telling you how badly it was damaged in the explosion and what the repair status is.

The Herald package also features numerous stories, as well as a couple of videos and a narrated slide show. The slide show, in particular, is strikingly sharp and well-produced.

All in all, a fitting commemoration.
