On CNN now. Says propane tanker( I believe truck) exploded. Now they say maybe a barge. As usual too early, just guesses. Coast Guard is everywhere around it.

Just yesterday, I was hearing of a refinery worker that was kidnapped, interrogated and beat up by his captors. They were looking for more information on the refineries. The article had said that the FBI was alerting other refineries to the incident. Wonder if there is a connection?
