Explosion at Charlestown cement plant sickens bus drivers.
The yard houses about a third of the city's public school-bus fleet; Channel 4 says at least 60 drivers were rushed to the hospital after being coated with cement dust following an explosion at the Lafarge cement plant next door.
The school department had its auto-dialer call parents to let them know their kids could be late - but that principals and other school workers would stay at school until all the kids were on the way home.
Cement-dust clean-up tips from the Boston Public Health Commission.
