I happen to live close to where the Colonial pipeline exploded. The apartment complex is just across the highway from my house. I remember waking to what sounded like a rocket landing on top of my house. The way my bedroom was lit up in a bright red and my house was shaking, I would swear that we just got hit by a nuclear bomb. When I figured out that I was not facing imminent death, I ran outside and took a picture of the fire.
The wiki entry mentions an interesting comment from some others that may have also thought we got nuked.
