Some 40 people are still missing after a train carrying oil
somehow came loose early Saturday morning (July 6), speeding downhill nearly seven
miles into the town of Lac Megantic, Canada, and derailing, with at least five of the cars exploding. "This is an unbelievable disaster," said Canadian Prime Minister Stephen
Harper, who toured the town on July 7 and compared it to a war zone. "This
is an enormous area, 30 buildings just completely destroyed, for all
intents and purposes incinerated. There isn't a family that is not
affected by this."
