News from Minneapolis Star Tribune:

TIANJIN, China — Thunderstorms Tuesday complicated recovery efforts from last week’s massive explosions at a warehouse in China’s Tianjin port that killed at least 114 people, left 57 missing and exposed dangerous chemicals — including some that could become flammable on contact with water.

Experts have expressed concern that rain could spread some of the vast quantities of hazardous material at the site or set off chemical reactions sparking further explosions. Rain began falling mid-morning, but there was no immediate word of new blasts.

Underscoring the weakness of China’s system of industrial safety, the head of the national organization responsible for those efforts has been placed under investigation for suspected “severe violation of discipline and law” — standard shorthand for corruption — the ruling Communist Party’s anti-graft watchdog said Tuesday.

No details were given about the allegations against Yang Dongliang, who was appointed head of the State Administration of Work Safety three years ago and also worked in state industry and local government in Tianjin for 18 years, including as a vice mayor from 2001 to 2012.

Investigators want to retrieve the vessel, which sank July 4 following a fireworks display, to assist their probe into how it capsized. Police have said a variety of factors, including overcrowding – there were 10 children and 17 adults aboard the 34-foot Kandi Won – weather and possible mechanical malfunctions could have caused the accident.

No criminal charges have been filed. Police said the morning after the accident that it did not appear the operator of the vessel was intoxicated.

James Mercante, an attorney for the boat’s owner, Kevin Treanor – whose 11-year-old daughter, Harlie Treanor, was among those killed – insisted at a news conference Tuesday that overcrowding was not a cause of the accident. He said the vessel was equipped with the required number of life jackets for all 27 passengers.

The children who died were not required to be wearing life jackets because they were in the boat’s cabin, authorities said. Adults are not required to wear life jackets, but…………… continues on KTIV
