Lava from a four- day- old volcano has caused a huge explosion at a gas station in Congo.
Witnesses say the massive fireball killed about 50 people who were trying to siphon fuel from elevated tanks.
Refugees have been returning to the area, even though aid officials have warned them to stay away.

Goma, hoping more aid will arrive soon. (SKY) But as the red hot flow empties into the waters of Lake Kivu, there is fear of another threat ... that the sulfur in the lava will react with the water producing

An important point here is people want to focus on the accounting and I think thats fair game. But a company has failed. And it failed because the economics didnt work.
NARR: That failure wiped out life savings for Enron employees and investors. They held onto Enron stock while company executives were dumping it. Andersen received millions from Enron to both audit the companys books and consult Enron executives on its finances. Congress tried to limit this practice but accounting lobbyists defeated the effort. Now the S.E.C.s chairman says his agency lacks the resources to police the accounting industry.

SOT: ALREADY FONTED: This Week, ABC/Harvey Pitt/S.E.C. Chairman

The problem with having the SEC do this is that there isn't enough money and there aren't enough people for the government to undertake this responsibility.
The Bush Administration is still answering questions. The latest are about Vice President Dick Cheneys calls to India on behalf of Enron last year. Thats when India owed Enron millions for its help in a power plant deal.

Another correspondent (J. Falls/Appomattox) was sympathetic to the truckers as well:
"In my judgment the main reason for all or at least most of these accidents can be attributed to the fact that there are not enough places for drivers to stop and rest. The truck stops are full by 6pm and the state does not allow parking on the on and off ramps."

Last night at 2 o'clock in the morning there was an incredibly strong earth tremor resulting from volcanic activity, so it's still very early to know in terms of security whether people can actually go back.

Goma, hoping more aid will arrive soon. (SKY) But as the red hot flow empties into the waters of Lake Kivu, there is fear of another threat ... that the sulfur in the lava will react with the water producing

Some motorists like the idea .. but truckers see it differently.
A new proposal to have trucks pay for safety improvements to Interestate 81 gets mixed reaction along the highway.
And as Justin McLeod reports, the plan may face plenty of opposition.

The solution may come from a group called Star Solutions.
Its a coalition of road construction companies which would like to widen Virginia's section of the interstate.
They propose creating separate lanes for cars and trucks.
