West Virginia Mine Explosion

I'm bumping this to the top. I know most of my readers also read Kilo's blog. For those who don't (yes, both of you), he has kept me remarkably up to date on this tragedy.

Prayers are needed for 13 miners trapped underground by an explosion this morning.

At this time there is still no word as to suvivors, rescue attempts having been thwarted by high carbon monoxide levels.

Oxygen generators carried by these gentlemen are good for several hours (under the best of circumstances). It's already been much longer than that.

UPDATE:4:45am, Wednesday.
Kilo has details...
12 found dead, 1 survivor in hospital.
