Massive explosion in Jersey, UK


Recommended Posts


(The island of Jersey isn't in the UK, BTW)


I saw this on the news earlier, and it seems unclear what caused the explosion — unless it's been clarified since.

CNN says neighbors reported smelling gas the night before the explosion. My thoughts go out to the people who are going through this. There's been several home explosions in my area over the past year. Terrible.

@acute I thought the Channel Islands were all UK, my bad.  This CCTV video shows the moment of the explosion.

4 hours ago, and-then said:

Easy and understandable mistake to make.

"The Channel Islands are divided into two British Crown Dependencies, the Bailiwicks of Guernsey and Jersey. The former also includes the islands of Alderney, Sark and Herm, and smaller islands are divided between the two bailiwicks.

"The islands are not part of the United Kingdom or European Union, but rather are possessions of the British Crown with independent administrations. Their inhabitants are British citizens."


Latest on the explosion....

No survivors found in search after blast

A dozen people are missing.

That's one heck of an explosion(with a small after-explosion a little to the right?). All the houses around the explosion look very new. I wonder if the flats that blew up were new too.

Emergency services and specialist teams are continuing a search and recovery operation after a huge explosion at a block of flats in Jersey.

Jersey Police said at least five people were known to have died, with at least four still missing. They warned they do not expect to find survivors.
