December 06 2012 – Yellow Smog after Chemical Container Explosion in Buenos Aires, Argentina

It may feel ironic but a huge yellow toxic cloud sits over the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires following a chemical container explosion in Buenos Aires. Residents have to stay inside and evacuate the explosion surroundings. This toxic cloud over Buenos Aires was caused by the spill of a pesticide container in the harbor. This explosion even delayed flights and several train lines were interrupted. The situation is said to be under control but people still should avoid any contacts with the product because it irritates eyes and mucous membranes.

The yellow Smog:

People in the streets of Buenos Aires:

In Spanish. La nube tóxica que cubrió a la Capital Federal y parte de Buenos Aires fue provocada por el derrame de un contenedor con pesticida en base a carbono sólido en el Puerto. Este video que llegó a TN y la Gente muestra los primeros minutos de la situación desencadenada en el Dique 4. Por el plaguicida que llenó de humo a la Ciudad de Buenos Aires hubo edificios evacuados, vuelos atrasados y varias líneas de trenes interrumpidas. Según le dijo a la prensa el secretario de Seguridad, Sergio Berni, el olor que causó alarma es de “baja toxicidad”y aseguró que la situación está “controlada”. De todas formas, el funcionario nacional se sumó a las recomendaciones de la Defensa Civil porteña y recalcó la importancia de “evitar el contacto” con el producto porque genera “irritación en ojos y mucosas”.
