Apocalypse Lac Mégantic

The town of Lac-Mégantic, in Quebec, Canada, was the site of an apocalyptic sight the other night as a result of a catastrophic train mishap involving dozens of burning and often exploding tanker rail cars filled with crude oil. Perhaps the oddest thing I noted in this amazing footage is the ironic sight of the very ass-end of the train continuing to blink its rear warning light despite being dead stopped and largely on fire in the middle of a modern town with tremendous fireballs and whirling dervishes of swirling smoke looming up behind that sight.
