Question
On February 1, 2015, one of the huge storage tanks of Viking Manufactur­ing Company exploded. Windows in houses and other buildings within a one-mile radius of the explosion were severely damaged, and a number of people were injured. As of February 15, 2015 (when the Decem­ber 31, 2014, financial statements were completed and sent to the publisher for printing and public distri­bution), no suits had been filed or claims asserted against the company as a consequence of the explosion. The company fully anticipates that suits will be filed and claims asserted for injuries and damages. Because the casualty was uninsured and the company considered at fault, Viking Manufacturing will have to cover the damages from its own resources.
