Like 32 people, but hundreds were hurt and blocks of homes were destroyed.
The news yesterday were comparing the explosions with the ones in Banciao in 1995, on Chinese New Year. Luckily, most people were on their way down South, so there were no fatalities, but 19 buildings were destroyed.
What worries me in thsi kind of incident are not the dead, but the ones left “living”. Sure, from the 500 hurt at the amuesement park blaze less than teh estimated died, but msot of teh seriously hurt are in vegetable sstate. That is not living.
At leats 3 people from these Taichng explosions have burns in 80% of their bodies.
