  1. So nobody was killed? You guys need a bit more thorough journalism on this incident especially if it’s 2-weeks old and you provided utter poor details.

    1. By all means , please go to school for journalism and put your money where your mouth is .

  2. All that destruction just for “money”. Money isn’t worth anything. Gold and silver yea have value but paper money is nothing. Those who think they got millions.. have nothing

    1. Gold and silver have just as much value as paper money, whatever a powerful government or the international community accepts. Those who have millions… have millions.

  3. Why are they towing it rather than containing the spill? That looks like worse, not better. Oh well…. At least the fire is getting put out.
