I don't have a link as this happened like 120 seconds ago, I don't even have a picture, I will do in a second, I will add it when my son sends me the picture.

There is smoke for miles around. At first we thought it was a plane crash, or a rocket, I can see this every night, and I have never seen it like this

It looks like it blew up!

Photo coming

Sounds exciting.

Nothing about an explosion on a google search so far.

Did the explosion just happen?

These don't do it justice. Pictures taken by my son who is a bit away from my house.
I live 40 miles away? It is usually just wee tiny flame. You can see the smoke.
I went back out and it looks worse.

Anyone near?

10 mins ago, a big bang, like an echo, we JUST over the water, what you see is a few houses and trees from where my son is. Others are talking about it now on Twitter and Facebook. Hope we are wrong.

You sure it's not just the refinery lighting up the clouds as its dark like it usually does?

This is obviously very worrying news, and obviously we have to hope that whatever situation is ongoing at the location mentioned, that it is dealt with speedily and comprehensively. If there has been a blow up, I hope no one has been injured or worse, killed.

I would not have thought, that if there has been a significant event, that there will be all that much longer before some mainstream news comes out about it. In the meantime, if you have any contacts in the area, might I suggest that you contact them, and recomend that they remain indoors with thier windows and doors shut down tight?

Also, if there is anyone round about there who has access to a long lens, or at least a decent digital camera, to get as much as they can, and get it to you. This is going to be breaking news if it is indeed anything significant. I certainly cannot imagine how it could be anything less than catastrophic if the boom hit you from a distance.

It would be the first time ever.
If there was no loud bang I probably wouldn't have posted.

Everyone I am speaking to on Facebook is saying "What has happened over in fife" I am North West Edinburgh.

Interesting news article I came across trying to find our more on this current incident


WEST FIFE communities living around Mossmorran and Braefoot Bay have been told that emissions from both plants are "well within" the set limits.


Link

I would have to look into it more to know exactly what limits they are referring to, but perhaps something built up and exploded.

This article is dated 15 days ago.

Just to add some more background, I found a similar tale from 2011

fallingsky.blogs.com...

Apparently local residents had been frightened about the noise coming from the plant... and they had to shut it down for a while because of errant valves venting steam (explosively?) which caused local politicians to raise complaints.

I am, as well, watching every new source - awaiting some sort of clarification. I don't live near a refinery. But I do live near a really large landfill that, on occasion, has rather loud methane explosions that aren't dangerous. Is that a possibility here?

I'm in Ayrshire so obviously I wouldn't see or here anything but have been scouring all the news channels etc and cany find anything about it as yet....

If you look here you will see how it lights up the night sky when you look over to it

Found another article from January 12/2013


CAMPAIGNERS CALLING for 
permanent air quality monitoring stations in towns surrounding a Fife chemical plant have released early results of a local 
consultation.


The survey set up by volunteers who run community website Loch of Shining Waters asks residents who live near the Mossmorran plant if they are concerned about their health and safety.

More than 100 people have completed an online questionnaire about the site. Almost half are Lochgelly and Cowdenbeath 
residents, while the remaining respondents live in nearby villages.

More than 75% say they have fears 
about health and environmental impacts, while 60% are worried about safety at the plant.

Three quarters of respondents report noise and light pollution, while almost 
half say they have felt vibrations in their homes.

LINK

This plant was opened decades ago, though news reports revolving around these plants have been sparse up until only a month or two ago.

It seems the people around the area have had a growing concern for awhile. It appears they're fears were justified.

I blame the aliens...It's all their fault.

Seriously though IF this turns out to be true then that's just crazy. Hopefully no one got hurt or killed. With a explosion that large it might be pretty bad.
