Explosions in Dallas

By now, you have probably heard of the gas storage plant here in Dallas that exploded this morning. We are quite fortunate that only three people were injured in this incident.

For the best video of the event that I have been able to find, click here.

For the best images, here.

From the Dallas Morning News:

Fiery gas explosions sent debris flying and unleashed massive plumes of smoke near downtown Dallas today, prompting officials to shut down two major interstates and evacuate businesses within a half-mile of the blaze.

At least three people were hospitalized with injuries that were not considered life-threatening after the explosion at Southwest Industrial Gases in the 500 block of South Industrial Boulevard just south of downtown.
The company I work for is well South of this area, so I was not affected by the road closings, but there are one heck of a lot of folks going to have a rough time getting home this evening.
