FTFA: "The incident, known as a "tank break," took place at the Anchor Glass Container Corp..."

UsikFark: Karma Curmudgeon: WhyteRaven74: Karma Curmudgeon: 131 tons of molten glass would be a lot like it.

By weight? Yes, by volume? No. The most common forms of glass have densities of roughly 5,000 lbs up to about 12,000 lbs per cubic yard. And this was 262,000 lbs of glass. So you're looking at somewhere between a bit over 52 cubic yards of glass for the less dense stuff down to about 21.8 cubic yards. How much is that? Well even at the higher end, 52 cubic yards, it wouldn't be enough to fill a 15 foot wide, 4 foot high above ground pool. Even with the lower density glass, the pool would be about one third unfilled.

And?

Mega Steve: According to Etherton, damage was also done to equipment surrounding the tank, which will be repaired within the next few days.

"The hot glass caused some fires and damaged some of the surrounding equipment," said Etherton. "We'll be making repairs to the damaged equipment over the next few days."
