CHINA EXPLOSION: Another Massive Gas Explosion Rocks China, Casualties Unknown

I think I might include EXPLOSION from around the world in my EXPLOSIONS update - this would make the 5th such recent EXPLOSION. See here

A massive explosion has been reported at China’s Yima gas plant in Henan province, damaging buildings in a 3-kilometer radius. The casualties are still unknown as of the time of reporting, with some media citing Chinese television as saying that 18 people had so far been reported as injured, a dozen missing and possibly two confirmed fatalities. Stills taken from Chinese television show giant plumes of smoke in the aftermath of the explosion. According to AFP news agency reporters in Beijing, the explosion took place on Friday at 5:45pm local time in the air separation unit at the Yima gas factory and did not hit the gas tank areas.
