Bathia_Mapes: ThatDarkFellow: Why did the trucks explode? Was this intentional or am I missing a part of the story?From what they're saying on the live feed is that the semis near the plant were full of empty propane tanks, the kind you use with a propane barbeque, but that there's enough residue inside each one of them to make them explosive. One of the things the plant does is fill those propane tanks.
Man On Pink Corner: Hollie Maea: This was almost me a few weeks ago. We had one (of 24) Silane exhaust lines go. Shook the whole damn building. If the main Silane store had gone, it would have blown us all to hell.Intel fab?
styckx: Gazillion gallons of foam... This guy..
radarlove: I think the aliens are secretly weakening our alloys...
tenpoundsofcheese: wouldn't have happened if they went solar.

3700 sq. feet tank farking gone
Runs_With_Scissors_: WESH Orlando has a chopper in the air and are covering it, as wel. http://livewire.wesh.com/Event/Live_updates_Explosions_reported_in_ Tav aresIt's the Blue Rhino plant.And a lumber yard next to it.
tbeatty: Trailer park. Nothing to see. Move along.
ArmednHammered: an untrained delivery driver used a steel hammer to free a frozen LH2 fitting
DarkSoulNoHope: How much you want to bet that we will see a similar list of safety concerns to the plant in West Texas? I just have an odd feeling that Republican lead states don't care too much about the safety of the people (or much else regarding the general welfare of those people, unless they're obscenely wealthy)/I hope the casualties are minimal//hope something will be learned from this and applied before the next possibly preventable accident
tbeatty: Propane and a lumber yard. Something tells me a rail line and a trailer park and a prison are within walking distance.

TheJadedJester: So, I live near by where all this is going on. There was a steady stream of small explosions. I couldn't see the flames from here but you can hear it every time there is an explosion. I honestly thought it was a bit of heat lightning until neighbors came outside and the phone calls around town put it all together. At first we thought maybe a plane crashed at the Leesburg airport.
