Residents of Independence, Missouri would do well to remember that a booming business can go BOOM! To wit: “Three train cars carrying ammunition to an Orenburg region military base exploded Tuesday,” themoscowtimes.com reports, “sending a white cloud of smoke into the air and causing emergency workers to evacuate thousands of residents from the surrounding area. As a result of the explosions, which took place at the Donguzsky base at about 1 p.m. local time, up to 10,000 residents of two nearby towns are being evacuated, emergency officials told Interfax.” Safety Susie says safety first, last and whenever you’re dealing with epic amounts of explosive material.
