It raises concerns I had initially had about them entering the building in the first place. I also mentioned to someone at the weekend, how can a business be allowed to be built in an area where there is no water supply in the event of a fire!! It beggars belief really.

Ive looked around me, and yes there are two that could go off with a hell of a bang, one about 1k away and the other 3 k.. as for water supply.. guess they use the same bore water as me.. certainly not a big lake underneath us.
Lets hope when the emotions fade, that the authorities arent allowed to say it was a one off... we have a winter of power cuts about to occur, according to dem that know it all, unusual weather patterns, and high demand on old systems.. so the stresors will start to show.
the next thing is][and understandably so] that the added cost for insulating the gases from possible explosions will be added to the item.. so things like cheese will be hitting the $20/per/kilo soon.
Its a nightmare just imagining, if those tanks had gone up and even if they had only blasted for 200m instead of the thousand discussed that would have been 500 folk no longer here, or very sick if they were
