"INSTITUTE, W.Va. -- Witnesses reported seeing a red fireball and feeling a blast as far away as Charleston, after an explosion was reported at the Bayer Crop Science Plant in Institute at 10:35 p.m. Thursday. The explosion was heard at least as far away as Mink Shoals."

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.


Witnesses saw a mushroom cloud!
Wow...

And yeah, at least one person was hurt - so, let's hope s/he pulls through.

The major concern is, of course, the potentially toxic cloud that was released.

Great reporting man! I do hope the injuries are minimal. Maybe since it was nighttime there was not a whole crew working. So this was some kind of crop/pesticide manufacturing plant? I didn't know Bayer did that.

Crop Science plant. Maybe ammonium nitrate problem? Same fertilizer Oklahoma bombing used

en.wikipedia.org...


Ammonium nitrate decomposes into gases including oxygen when heated (non-explosive reaction); however, ammonium nitrate can be induced to decompose explosively by detonation. Large stockpiles of the material can be a major fire risk due to their supporting oxidation, and may also detonate, as happened in the Texas City disaster of 1947, which led to major changes in the regulations for storage and handling.



Just like a lot of other chemicals.. and most other things in life.. The second you don't respect it ..It will turn around and bite you.


Edit.. Oh and here is a nifty video of a Fertilizer bomb

What's bizarre is they were JUST talking about Bayer chemical manfacturing toxic nicotine based pesticides which could be depleting honeybee populations on C2C and then this story hit...

Not sure of the location.

I imagine more will be available shortly on the web or radio, but Linda Howe was speculating about the cause of the event, accident, or sabotage.

What a coincidence, considering their topic of conversation. Shuddering, up here in Toronto, where a propane plant recently exploded. Hope everyone at the Bayer plant is OK.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.


I thought ammonium nitrate at first too, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

The chemicals stored there were listed in the article, and it's a safe bet that one or more from that list were responsible for the explosion.

If I had to put money on what caused the explosion, I'd say it was dimethyl disulfide. Just an educated guess...

Linda Howe just said on Coast that the explosion had occurred in a part of the plant that makes a neurotoxin, according to messages sent to her. This would be part of their insecticide operation.

I have family down there, and seen the size of the plant.
The plant is massive in size, plus its right on the river.
If anything I wouldn't touch the water supply in the county for a good long while.

funny, I'm a c2c listener, but in this case, since I'm a nutball who posts regularly on Above Top Secret, all my friends know to tell me the minute they hear something strange happening.

I've still been unable to get more info than whats already here in the post and in the article link.

One plant worker injured, another missing (not sure if that includes the one person rumored dead...)

Now I'm listening to c2c and a caller just called in noting a recent 60 Minutes story covering a liability issue uncovering Bayer's responsibility in the deaths of 1,000s (22,000 by estimate) for Bayer's drug Trasylol... that was back in Feb, and the chemical here is, at least, unrelated.

Ok.. first of all to all the people saying "oh, I hope everyone is alright"... HA HA HA

it's an evil chem company that is responsible for the death of thousands of people because of their "drugs" and you hope everyone is alright?

not me, I hope that plant was wiped off the face of the earth. including those people responsible for the crappy drugs they make and push.

and second... it was in WV! who cares? it's one of the dirtier, raped and backwards states out there..

people, don't be so distracted by your bleeding hearts.
