Apparently there is a 3rd explosion. Nearby Carnival Cruise Triumph is being evacuated.

If only there was some word for what they should be doing...

/Hope everyone's ok

What is it with shiat blowing up this month? Can't we just go back to some more traditional mayhem? Like shark attacks or something.

It could be terrorism, no?

Or an accident? Possibly negligence? Must every bad thing be terrorism? That word is beginning to lose it's punch.

Non-issue. Overzealous staffer.

/in all seriousness - I hope the injuries are minor and recovery quick and well compensated.

Too many bad things all bunched together, is suspicious.

Natural Gas seems like a horrible material to build a barge out of.

I drive a natural gas car that shocks me all the time, so I am not getting a kick out of this.

So we have this new flash but what about the mass shooting in IL and 5 people who were killed?

I agree with the above comment about April, what is with this month it is all about horrific events.
 
2013-04-24 10:55:49 PM  
this April won't quit. I hate to see what the 30th will be like.  The Apocalypse perhaps?
 
2013-04-24 10:56:05 PM  
Must have been a leprechaun.
 
2013-04-24 10:56:05 PM  
Speculation would be for it to not be terrorism, terrorists would have targeted the cruise ship (like they did the USS Cole) and not a natural gas barge.

I understand Michael Bay wants us to go see Pain & Gain, but JESUS...

Can we get a pipeline and stop hauling the gas around already?

Carnival Triumph, in Mobile's port undergoing repairs, was evacuated, and spectators were asked to move away from the waterfront.

There's your problem.

One of the repair crew did it?
 
2013-04-24 10:57:24 PM  
More regulations would have prevented this. Whatever it was. I just know it, because I've been told so.

Maybe that was more spectacular.

IronTom: NewportBarGuy: IronTom: It could be terrorism, no?

No.

Why not?


Low casualties so far.
Barges were reported to be empty.
My guess, just pulled out of my ass, is that there were enough fumes to ignite still in the barges after transfer of the LNG.

Whatever it is, I credit small government and their refreshing lack of regulation.  We'll probably find out the barges were carrying 1,350 times the natural gas that would normally trigger safety oversight by the US Dept. of Homeland Security.
 
2013-04-24 10:59:56 PM  
Static, huh? I knew that shiat was bad. Zaps me ever morning.

So when the article says that they were mostly empty, it's all part of the conspiracy?
 
2013-04-24 11:01:06 PM  
I said it before. I'll say it again.

If your industry has the ability to do massive damage to yourself/the surrounding area/civilians, you should be regulated as hard as nuclear power is now.
