this past Friday at 3pm there was an explosion in this location which claimed 10 lives. A very tragic event for this small community. I took this photo May 2019 when we were visiting the area. It is a beautiful town and we thought we might move there sometime. The store (in the backgound) is a busy place where people buy their groceries, stop and use the post office which is also in the building or have a converation with people they know. There was also apartments above and beside the store. It was a hub of the community. I hope the people can recover from this devastating event. The whole country is shocked and in mourning.
The authorities currently don't know the cause of the explosion and won't until their investigation is completed. You can read it about HERE if you wish.
