A local chemical facility has had a big explosion in my general area. The blast rocked homes for a pretty wide radius. Homes and students in nearby schools are being evacuated. This literally happened within the last hour.

I'm posting this because it is quite a wakeup after seeing all the Katrina coverage and essentially being a world away from that. I feel like I'm getting a reminder to consider localized situations.
