  1. Show Spoiler

    My heart goes out to everyone involved. Apparantly the fire is still burning so the cause will be unknown for a while. Possible chance it's linked to the Boston bombs?
     


  2. Video of the explosion. 29 seconds in.
     
  3. There's a video in the source, that has someone standing outside as it goes off, I'm not sure if the guy is alright or what as the filming stopped as soon as it went black near him.
     
  4. There are only 2-3 dead according to CNN currently William. The injured are more though.
     
  5. Oh I guess this is like fucking Boston again, you have different sites telling you different things. I've read a few times the death toll could be up in the 60's or 70's. I guess we'll just be waiting again to see how many people are dead :/

    There's a site saying 60 - 70 also ^^

    The one as my source says it could go as high as 70 and that's CNN to.
     
  6. Da end is near :Robbie:
     
  7. Well it is a fertilizer plant. There was a fire before the explosion and on Australian TV News it's said there was a thunder-storm around the time that happened. Could be linked to the Massachusetts bombing but could also still be a coincidental tragedy. I hope those there are safe, I personally know someone who lives around that area
