2014-09-16 - Sewer main breaks, 11 million gallons of sewage spews, some hits the Missouri River, in Chesterfield (Missouri):

Quote: "A main break that dumped 11 million gallons of sewage in the Chesterfield area did not pose a public health threat, according to water officials. Some of the sewage discharge went into the Missouri River upstream from drinking water intakes for the city of St. Louis and for Missouri American Water, which serves parts of St. Louis and St. Charles counties, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. But it's difficult to gauge exactly how much made it into the river and other waterways, Lance LeComb, a spokesman for the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District, said Tuesday. The total amount of sewage released was roughly the volume of 17 Olympic swimming pools."

Note: So if they don't know how much sewage is in the river from this event, how can they be so sure that it's not a public health threat?! This is apparently where my drinking water comes from. That's a bunch of sh#t! Literally!

2014-09-14 - Building collapses in coastal Rayong (Thailand), 4 injured:

Note: Toxic gas of unknown origin sickened thousands of people and sent them fleeing in Rayong in June, mentioned in the 2014-06-08. Hydrogen sulfide is not only highly reactive, explosively flammable and poisonous, it's also corrosive to steel and concrete, so infrastructure built out of steel and/or concrete will tend to weaken and collapse more quickly than in normal times...
