This was really a huge explosion, althought not to laugh about. I hope the government of the UK (or regional gourment) will learn from this excident. My conclusion: don't store to much fuel (or fireworks) at one place..

That's a good point, I wonder how well protected the huge US oil reserves are...

Do they know what started it?

Interesting that you should recommend not storing too much of a volatile substance in one place.

They are also recommending this, now, to US chemical companies who amass huge amounts of chemicals to make their operations more streamlined and economical.

They are also concerned about the terrorist risk involved with keeping too much of these materials in one, accessible place, where it may be hard to keep track easily of the volume and volume differences over time.

Why can't we all just go back to swinging in trees and throwing rocks at things we don't like?
