Terry K Explosion at oil depot (UK) (32) RE: Explosion at oil depot (UK) 12 Dec 05


I was up and doing when it happened. There was the most enormous clatter and my house was shaken to its footings. I thought my boiler had exploded and went downstairs expecting chaos but it was all completely quiet. Went outside but there was no sign of anything untoward so I just got on with things. Strange though, it was one hell of a blast but once I couldn't find a reason for it I lost interest - until the television was put on later. I'm about 10 miles distant.

It was very murky near my golf club at Harpenden later on, the huge pall of smoke was hiding the sun a lot of the time, but it was probably more than 3 miles away so we weren't really affected.
