A hydrogen refueling station exploded and stood in flames yesterday in Sandvika, Norway, which could make June 10, 2019 the day when the perception about hydrogen stations and hydrogen fuel cell cars, in general, will forever change.
According to reports from the Uno-X station, the explosion was huge. It triggered airbags in nearby cars and caused the necessity to close off the busy E18 and E16 intersection. A safety zone of 500 meters was recommended by the fire service.
The good news is that there are no reports about direct injuries, but some reports say two people were sent to the emergency room because of injuries sustained from airbags in their cars. . . .
The author's comments seem more than a little hyperbolic. After all, it's not as if oil refineries never explode*, which is why they and any hazardous substance plant are located with large safety areas around them for that reason. Did anyone think they were completely safe? I mean, two whole people were injured in this case by air bag deployment - Oh, the horror!

The Texas City Refinery explosion occurred on March 23, 2005, when a hydrocarbon vapor cloud was ignited and violently exploded at the ISOM isomerization process unit at BP's Texas City refinery in Texas City, Texas, killing 15 workers, injuring 180 others and severely damaging the refinery.
Maybe there are people so clueless that they think that H2 is completely safe rather than being a hazmat, just as gasoline is. The sales stoppage is temporary; if there's no fuel, who's going to buy the cars?
