Description

From the contest entry summary: "The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reasoned that chemical plants would be a major terrorist target in the wake of Sept. 11 attacks. If ruptured, tanks storing catastrophic levels of chemicals could kill, injure or displace millions of Americans living in or around our largest cities. Similar events have transpired in the Serbo-Croatian-Bosnian wars in the 1990s, and domestic and foreign terrorists have claimed credit for attacking chemical tanks in the U.S. and Middle East."
