Explosion in Middletown, CT

The news is reporting that there was a major explosion at a new clean energy plant in Middletown, CT that was just coming online. Two people are dead and 200 or more are injured. Middletown is my home town, and I hope everyone I know there is okay.

UPDATE: The original injury estimate was pretty liberal.  Five people were killed, but only a dozen or so were injured.  There were only about 50 people on the site, but I guess the newscasters expected a lot more.  No one I know was hurt, fortunately, but several people I don't know were, unfortunately.

Some idiot on YouTube is claiming the explosion was a terrorist attack, and the plant is owned by... Luthor Corp. And that Bubba the Love Sponge rules.

Meanwhile, the Hartford Courant is reporting that apparently some welding equipment was still active during the gas flushing, so it looks more like negligence.
