Two explosions caused by runaway railroad cars rocked Montana's capital city Thursday, cutting off electricity and forcing the evacuation of thousands of people as wind chills dipped to 70 degrees below zero. The runaway cars derailed and hit a propane tank near the railroad tracks, setting off an explosion. Minutes later, the fire from the blast caused one of the derailed cars containing a flammable chemical to blow up, authorities said.
