Japan: Fatal blast at Mitsubishi Materials factory
« on: January 09, 2014, 02:43:27 AM »
Via the BBC:

At least five people have been killed in an explosion at a chemical factory in central Japan, police say.

The blast occurred at a plant run by Mitsubishi Materials in the town of Yokkaichi in Mie prefecture.

Maintenance crews were working on a heat exchanger used in the production of silicon products when the blast happened, a spokesman at the plant told the AFP news agency.

At least 12 people are reported to have been injured.
The fastest way to a man's heart? Inch to the right of the breastbone, between the fourth and fifth rib.

Every time I start to feel boring, I remember there is a monthly magazine devoted to elevators.
