Yeah, that was pretty intense. I am hoping that it is still deemed an accident. :(

Can see the smoke from my mates house which is just the next town from here, a couple of miles (my house is in a valley, so can't see anything ;))... It is... pretty amazing...
Forgot to take my camera though. :(

One of my other mates who lives in a town very near to there apparently had shaking windows, shaking ground... well, shaking everything when the explosion happened. Woke them all up...
They've now gone away (of their own choice) and are waiting till it's all cleared... They weren't terribly close but apparently all you could smell was smoke...

Man that is an epic fire...looks like a volcano spewing flames out. I wonder if the ISS has taken any good pictures.

Had a bicycle once.
Just to put it into perspective. The lower right landmass is France.

The article I copied the image from said that the cloud covers 140 km by now.
