    I hope any of you in the Midlands, or in or near Langley are alright and not being affected by this.

    They say to stay indoors.

    If you are near there, take care!

    Phosphorus, (atomic number 15) is part of the nitrogen family and called "Light bearer" in it's Greek terminology as it reacts with oxygen to produce a faint white (sometimes yellow) light which is a by-product of it burning.

    White/Yellow Phosporus is considered toxic, and was used as the ignitary agent in so-called "Molotov Cocktails" as well as being used to create the striking patches on match boxes amoungst other things.


    So if a cloud heads your way, don't walk into it!
    :S

    Ah. Finally an excuse to stay on my sofa. Indoors. I thought I was being lazy. In reality I am saving myself from a toxic cloud. Yey!

    there was a fire in a chemical plant - the fire is out, but some chemicals have been released in this cloud thats heading that way. I'm not very scientific, but its not nice. Can irritate eyes, noses, throats - asthma sufferes are possibly at a risk I would think too.

    Soory Beki....thougt people might have heard

    Langley and West Bromich.

    People to stay indoors and keep doors and windows closed. Motorists to keep moving and keep windows open and air vents closed.

    Also, reacts violently with water - so it has been warned that if you have been in contact with it to not have a shower/bath/wash until the cloud disperses.
