oil depot fire
i can't imagine what it must be like really nearby the depot. i live about 4 or 5 miles away and was awoken at just after 6am by an explosion and the house shaking.
Round here the most it seems to have done is; shake the house, knock people's lofts open and set off car alarm's.
it was so loud though i thought something in the house had exploded, but my dad showed me out of his window and you could see the smoke and that there was a huge fire. so we knew somthing big had happened but i didn't know exactly what it was till a couple of hours later when my parents came and told us having watched the news.
We went outside this morning and you could smell it slightly from here. its now getting brighter here, the smoke is sinking. We had to have the lights on all morning because the smoke was blocking the sun and making it just that little bit too dark not too put a light on.
i went to bed last night (well this moring) praying that no one was killed or really hurt. so far no fatalaties so fingers crossed it will stay that way.
