Five killed and 40 missing in Canada train disaster – Paula Newton reports

CNN is reporting a horrific runaway train disaster in Canada this morning.

A train loaded with crude oil derailed, crashed and exploded into flames in Lac-Megantic, Quebec.

At least five people are dead and another 40 still unaccounted for after the disaster. Authorities expect the death toll to climb.

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper says the small Canadian town now looks like a "war zone".

CNN’s Paula Newton is live in Lac-Megantic with details.
