Egads, grab your wellies and waders folks there’s a toxic mud spill in Hungary. Urgh, seems the walls of a reservoir holding back aluminum residue burst, causing a 2m wave of toxic sludge to engulf 7 villages. The sludge has left a path of destruction, with fears it may reach the Danube River. The interior minister has asked people to avoid contact with the mud because it friggin burns and could cause blindness if it gets in your eyes. Hungary has declared a state of emergency claiming it’s an “ecological catastrophe”. Sheez, I bet BP breathed a sigh of relief! So far the death toll is four but it is expected to rise.

Many of the Loons may know Corve Dacosta, he is a regular blogger here and a proud Jamaican who continually enlightens his readers about all that is good in his country. Sadly his Capital City Kingston is in a state of emergency thanks to the friggin druglord Christopher “Dudus” Coke. So I just want to do a shout out to Corve, his family and friends and hope you stay safe.
