That was a very shocking footage. The number of people who are injured and those that have not yet been accounted for is very alarming. I wonder what could have happened that triggered such an explosion. This should not be allowed to happen again. Very tragic.

It Could not be happen if we know how to do it and use it Right. How many more plants, working with dangerous materials, are there operating in this haphazard way, right next to peoples homes, schools & businesses ? If we don't know how to handle it with safety we will always encountered a disaster like this.
