Huge explosion rocks power plant in US, 50 killed, more than 100 injured

As many as 50 people are said to have been killed in an explosion Sunday at a US energy plant in Connecticut, a hospital spokesman told foreign news agency, adding a search and rescue operation was underway.

“The reports vary from a few, several to possibly as many as 50 dead,” Brian Albert from the Middlesex hospital, which was treating several of those injured in the blast said.

People living several miles from the plant reported that their homes were shaken by the blast at the Kleen Energy plant, being built outside Middletown.

Black smoke could be seen pouring out of the plant site shortly afterwards.
