This is terrible.
What in god's name is going on with all the explosions lately!!?

It's becoming all too common place all too quickly.

There's an explosion here, no wait there's a bomb over there, no wait another explosion.... TOO MUCH

My thoughts are with anyone caught up in this latest tragedy.

Can somebody tell me why this article is dated April 25th? It should still say the 24th, even if it was posted on the east coast.

I'm sure there will be some sort of conspiracy whipped up in short order.
It's not like a damn fuel barge can just explode without the illuminati being somehow involved.

Does AP use universal time which would put it today as 4-25? I don't know, just a guess.

Well..probably a mistake unless you want to think it was something nefarious.

Not saying you specifically but I am sure their are people here that will see that and say "TPTB DID IT! proof is the date is wrong. "

I have to add that while searching this I found another article that looked strange...........
Checkpoint

Seems odd, everything that is happening lately is peculiar.

PLPL

Note the time and date, maybe this is not related, or is it??

A third and fourth explosion were just reported, with more explosions a concern.

This would make sense being that the barges are all next to each other.

Oh, that does make sense.

ABC should have been more clear on that.

Another event that could have potentially devastating environmental consequences. The waterways are pretty much completely ruined already.
I sincerely believe we are in trouble on so many levels; all the awareness and enlightenment in the world might not save us now.

Seems to be dying down, but they're on alert for more explosions. Apparently the barges are chambered and it's unclear if any natural gas voids have yet to rupture.

I'm here in Mobile and have the tube on getting updates. Three were sent to the hospital.

Seen some through the grapevine reports that Austal was evacuated, heard anything about that?
