    I felt it too, it was not near essar there was a huge copper color mushroom cloud by the flake board plant area. We are beside essar. It felt like a transport hit my building. My parents felt it too and they are not that close to me. I took a pic of it.

    It sounded like it landed on my roof. That was insane! We're on the hill.

    the big mushroom copper colored cloud was coming from the baseline area. Shook my whole building. Looked out the back window and saw the cloud.

    You know I have lived in the west end for 15 years now.Never did this happen until last year. I don't like the fact that my house shakes and things fall off the walls. It scares the crap out of me.

    West end ARMEGEDDON LOL every year. I live on wallace terr, it shook my house and was lod enough that we all ducked for a second there. My poor old dog was outside she almost came through my back window, climbing the side of the house to escape. That place is gonna kill us one day, either by blowing us up or giving us heart attacks :/
