Initially they did, I'm not sure if they are being let in or not. I doubt it considering no one is getting close to it. It's still venting/exploding.

I'm heading to sleep---I can't take much more of the Fire Chief explaining the incident.

the checkpoints are very normal for Mobile.The media always puts something out beforehand,many times they get unlicensed drivers,seatbelt law offenders,etcetera.

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.

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

This is pretty common practice in the Mobile area. They are a real nuisance, to be honest.
Edit: I see that SilverStar cleverly slipped this in just ahead of me.

Question:

What are the odds that TWO barges explode at the same time?


Maybe the first explosion set off the second on the other barge...?

Second Question:

Why would TWO highly flammable barges be that close to each other anyways?

Geez America! We need to lock it up right now! Things are getting out of hand..barge explosions, plant explosions, bombings.

If your job has safety precautions or security procedures follow them. Focus people!

The Gulf was only just starting to recover...stay safe Mobile.

Industrial accidents will only become more common as our infrastructure ages and we divert money that should be spent on it to other areas.

If by "we divert money" you mean corporations bank as much money as possible for their execs instead of investing in operational upgrades focused on safety and environmental concerns - then we agree.

I started a thread about this in Alternative Breaking News - hadn't seen this one.

The Australian owned shipyard builds ships for the US Navy.

www.abc.net.au...

That's Waco (Texas - Bush), Canada (US ally) and possibly Austral shipyard (Australian - US ally). LInked?

Also today is 25th April (our time) which is Anzac (Australian New Zealand Army Core) Day which is the day Australia commemorates its soldiers lost in battle. The date itself comes from 25 April 1915 when Australian troops faced a "baptism of fire" when they landed at dawn at Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey and ran smack bang into the Turkish machine gunners who had been waiting for them. The British directed the whole thing and used the Anzacs as cannon fodder basically. It's a very sombre day here in Australia.

That is what came to mind as well,could be coincidence but hmmmmm?

I`m interested in further future reports coming in.

Lest we forget.

ETA

I `ve just been watching the video`s of the explosion and there not as big as I thought,the person who said their house shook from 48 kms away will have to come up with another explanation.

It was explained last night on the news that the sound of the explosion carried over the water.We had no wind last night,thereby the conditions were just right to allow the sound to travel miles upriver.As for feeling it,I'm at a loss.There have been stranger happenings.

Well you would know best, that is your neck of the woods. It dawned on me this morning that the mere fact that I would even think on that level is scary, but in light of all that is going on, it is hard not to think that way. I hope all worked out down there in Mobile.

Watch fuel barge explode in Alabama

Huffman said Wednesday night that authorities hadn't determined what caused the blasts, but were in the process of being prepped for reload when the explosion happened. The fire department's Twitter feed said they were filed with gasoline.

www.cnn.com...


Gasoline vapor mixed with a lot of air. Quite dangerous.

Fair enough SilverStar33,cheers for that.

Though 48kkms at the size of the blast seen on that video is hard to imagine shaking a house,unless there is footage that I`ve missed of a larger blast?
