41 People Die In Venezuelan Oil Refinery Explosion

Venezualan Oil Refinery Explosion

Hace Muy Calor, Nicht Wahr?

On Aug 25, 2012, Venezuela’s Amuay oil refinery went up in a fiery maelstrom that killed at least 41  people and injured 80 more. Worse than that, the explosion halted production at the country’s largest oil facility for two days, which means there could be a dip in profits, but that doesn’t really matter because this is a socialist country. Nearby houses were also damaged in the explosion.
