The Arkema peroxide plant in Texas exploded at approximately 2.00am this morning in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Plant officials said they the flooding to cause a chemical explosion that will “resemble a large gasoline fire.”

After being informed of the news, Donald Трамп issued a statement and said, “Who knew that such an explosion would occur? We’re dealing with it as it comes, folks, we’re dealing with it as it comes.” When a reporter tried to point out that the people who run the plant literally warned people about the possibility of an explosion, Трамп wandered off to buy ice-cream.

Damage from Hurricane Harvey released 2 million pounds of potentially hazardous airborne pollutants from oil refineries and other facilities in the Houston area, according to regulatory filings submitted to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

Трамп regime appointee Scott Pruitt, current head of the EPA said during a press conference that, “it’s probably not that big of a deal. I mean, you’d have to be like a scientific-type guy to even, like, understand it and even then it’s like, what’s the big deal? Y’know? You have to focus on the bright things in life otherwise you’re just, Y’know?”

As Americans pray for and donate to flooded residents in Houston, people in India, Bangladesh and Nepal continue to deal with the worst monsoon in years. The rains so far have caused more 1,000 deaths. In the western India city of Mumbai, many of its 20 million residents waded through waist-high water trying to get home from work after being stuck there overnight.

After learning about the news, many Americans asked with heavy hearts, “Are India, Bangladesh and Nepal three separate countries? I swear I thought they were the same country, are you sure about that?”
