Another day another disaster

About an hour ago, I was sitting in the apartment, when we heard some loud explosions from pretty close by. I attributed it to the ongoing constant construction in the neighbourhood, but 2 minutes later, Dan called, saying he was at the Esso station and that Leedon Road was closed down - due to a rather sizeable explosion next to our building. Me and Andreas book it outside, met with smoke and dust everywhere - as it turned out, the sub station right next to the building had exploded and fire trucks and police (hurrah for Singapore's Civil Defence) were heading over.

I think the worst has passed, though, knock on wood - waking up tomorrow morning in a pile of rubble would certainly be less than ideal.
