Are you joking about the pipeline? Because I`m sure it`s much safer to pipe the oil than haul it around on trains that derail.

Good thing we didn`t build that pipeline think of all the pollution it would cause......

BBC News Is All Over It!

Not any different information than @Crabes` link though.

Between 1-4 tankers exploded and/or burned (out of 70+ total).

There were LOTS of people nearby when it happened, the death toll will likely be much higher.

@tedgp, I don`t think so. About 70 crude oil tanks derailed at the center of the downtown there.

Read the caption. It`s a massive exaggeration.

"Downtown" L-M is only three blocks by one, so the inferno is not quite as big as it might seem. But my heart goes out to the poor residents and business owners going thru this.
