Huge Explosion in london
Here is a possible terrorist attack if I've heard of one: "Massive" explosions have struck an oil depot, owned by Total and Texaco, near one of London's main airports, filling the sky with orange flames and shattering windows and damaging roofs at nearby homes, police and witnesses said. Police said there had been two or three explosions at the Buncefield oil depot in Hertfordshire, northwest of London, about 20 kilometres (10 miles) from Luton airport, just before 6:00 am (0600 GMT). The blast was so powerful that it was heard as far as west and south London and, closer to the scene, blew the roofs off houses, according to Richard Ayres, a witness told BBC television. "It's like it's doomsday," said Ayres, who was watching the inferno from about 500 meters (yards). "The words I'm getting from friends of mine, they've actually had their roofs blown off the houses." "We woke up around five to six and there was an absolutely massive loud bang," Dave Franklin, who lives about a kilometre (half-mile) from the depot, told BBC television. Other witnesses reported hearing up to four separate blasts over the course of 30 minutes. No word on fatalities yet. Let's hope it's not really a terrorist attack though! Update: The police so far are saying it's an accident! But that's what the police always say at first. So, yeah, still nothing on the casualties front though. Update: 36 injured, of which 4 are seriously. Still considerd an accident so far!
