Oh no...


From WSPA:

A tornado heavily damaged a large Pfizer pharmaceutical plant in North Carolina on Wednesday, scattering medicine and other debris around the complex, a sheriff and the company said.

Pharmaceutical company Pfizer confirmed in an email that the large complex was damaged by a twister that tore through the Rocky Mount area, but it reported no serious injuries. "We are assessing the situation to determine the impact on production," the company said.

Nash County Sheriff Keith Stone said the Pfizer plant stores large quantities of medicine, adding debris was spread all around. "I've got reports of 50,000 pallets of medicine that are strewn across the facility and damaged through the rain and the wind," he said.
