The North Carolina fertilizer explosion is being blamed for chemical exposure symptoms by local residents. A resident living in an apartment complex next-door to the explosion is complaining of terrible chemical exposure headaches. Her caregivers are warning neighbors to stay indoors and monitor air quality alerts.

Thousands of residents were forced from their homes due to what’s becoming known as the largest explosion in American history. An estimated 500 tons of highly combustible ammonium nitrate was located within the fertilizer plant. Over 2,500 families located within one mile of the blast zone have been told they won’t be able to return home for 48 hours.

Reports state at least 36 plant workers were on the job during the explosion. There are no publicly known employee deaths or injuries to date. Officials don’t know what caused the explosion and the investigation continues.
