At around 8:30 am on April 7, 2020, hundreds of Hickory homes were affected by a massive explosion at the OneH2 hydrogen fuel cell plant. While there thankfully have not been any reported deaths from the explosion, reports indicate that a great many homes within the blast radius of the plant have suffered property damage. This damage has included damage to roofs, doors, and windows and in some cases, even the foundation of local homes. In addition to the property damage from the blast, there is undoubtedly an effect on the mental health of the residents of the homes that felt the explosion. The sense of security that those residents had at the time just up until the explosion is now gone, as something completely out of their control has now greatly affected them. This feeling is presumably even worse for children who in many cases, are unlikely to feel safe in their home for quite some time.
While nothing can undo the past and take the OneH2 explosion or others like it away, those affected by explosions or other actions by a negligent business can seek compensation through the court system.
