Thanks, WFTY!

I hadn't heard about the explosion until this thread. Just checked now and apparently there are five fatalities and 40 people are still missing. Scary stuff.

So, so tragic.

My thoughts to Lac Mégantic's population, family and friends.

Not a problem. You guys were with us during the Boston Marathon attack, we're with you during this tragedy.

I'm surprised they talked about this in the US. Thanks a lot.

I know someone who lives there but he told me he was safe, fortunately.

For those who can understand French, I watched this video earlier today: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v...type=2&theater

This is heartbreaking.

Still can't believe that a bomb train on fire made 11km without someone even being aware of it.

Terrible tragedy. The huge fire did not give any chance to the survivors of the hit

Such a small community too, the town will suffer from that for a long time.

That's what happens when nobody is driving.

God knows what would have been the death toll had this accident occurred during the day, when downtown megantic was filled with people.

Watched a news feed. The devastation in that town is immense.

The size of the town and the way it's described sounds a lot like my town. We don't have a railroad going through it anymore. That and being in Ontario are probably the only differences...

My condolences to everyone affected.

Pretty hard to follow, but what I'm getting from the video is that at least two of his sons and their wives were together at the time of the explosion. When it occurred, the eldest son grabbed his wife and bolted, telling his younger brother to follow because they needed to gtfo. The younger brother, named Gaetan, said "i need to get my wife", but didn't make it out alive . The one that did make ran with his wife down an entire road and over a bridge to get out of the growing flames' path. Both suffered serous burns. Whether or not the wife lived is unclear to me, because he said God spared two, and he mentioned another son Pascal that escaped the blaze because he left 10 minutes before the explosion to ho see his kids.
