It's a busy news day. Word is this morning (EST) that there's been a huge explosion at a chemistry building at the ENSC of Mulhouse, in Alsace in eastern France - an old and well-known chemical engineering school. One faculty member appears to have been killed, and there are several injuries. The building looks to have been severely damaged, and local residents are saying that the explosion was heard all over town and felt like an earthquake.
I've been looking at some news reports, but no one's reporting on what caused the blast. This sounds like much more than a typical batch-of-something-in-the-hood going up, though, that's for sure. If any readers can shed some technical light on this in the comments, I'd be grateful.
