If thats an LNG ship you DO NOT want to be anywhere near it, LNG ships going boom are a total nightmare, never really happens, nobody is really sure how to deal with them.

Death is unsure.Fox Ten is the best news source in this area.This is scary because family is 1-2 miles from there.Thankfully there's no wind at the moment.

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.

This doesn't have anything to do with this explosion, but at the same time as this, there is a bomb threat in San Dimas Cali - people are being evac'd.

So much going on at the same time.

Sure seems like anything that can go wrong lately, is. Really seems like the world is falling apart, on just about every front.



Hope nobody is seriously injured.

Yes it is LNG.If this had happened in daytime,loss of life would have been highly likely.
