There's a big chemical plant explosion right now in Des Moines about five or six miles away. They don't yet know the cause but there are a LOT of chemicals stored there that are hazardous with ongoing large secondary explosions. Some areas are being evacuated.
Could be an industrial accident and most likely is an accident. If it's an attack, to all of you terrorist enablers out there (and those who protest most strongly are probably the ones I refer), FU.
Fortunately, the winds are in a direction where I am ok but others are not so lucky. This happened right about where E/W I-80 and N/S I-35 intersect so it's going to affect a lot of transportation not to mention commuters.
