Yesterday afternoon I was chatting with my friend Eric in Kansas (I was supposed to be finishing chapter 2) when he told me there was a massive explosion in Kansas City. It took a while before any news got posted on the web but his wife Jen, who works near downtown, took this picture from her office.
It was a chemical plant in the industrial area and I believe that there were few injuries, but I thought the picture was very cool so I'm sharing it with all of you. Enjoy.
Postscript - Jen tells me that the fire is still burning, but nearly out as of this morning.
Edit - Here are some better pictures of the smoke over downtown.
