    Yeah they are some pretty awesome shots....

    They said on the news the other morning that a tanker driver "might" have pressed his emergency stop button cos he could smell fumes....

    I would think the designer of such button is kinda worried at the moment!!!

    I feel for that trucker. I read an article that everytime he flips the lightswitch it brings back awful flashbacks of the blast. The guy's in serious trauma.

    The trucker said he could smell petrol fumes (believed to be from the site) and shortly after he flipped the cut off switch there was an explosion. Ever since then he felt that he was somehow connected with the blast. But police are still investigating.
