Two people lost their lives today doing something we all enjoy very much. Just trying to be respectful to the families involved. We now know more details, but waiting for an official confirmation from the public information officer.

Dang! I go skiing in western MD for the weekend and come back to this. An exploded tanker off of the MD atlantic coastline and a flipped offshore cat in chessie bay.

Many lives lost from the tanker. Looks like two lost from the cat. Condolensces to all lost.

Thank you for removing the name Brian. I think we all agree it's proper protocol and best practice to wait for official information before posting information like that in a public forum.

Maryland Department Natural Resource Police (DNR) will be investigating the accident and releasing more information in the morning. mpally, local news reported there the accident was observed.

Unhappy

Agreed Keith.

I keep getting more choked up about this by the minute.

Brian thanks for taking the name out. Again until we know more info we should not make any speculations about who was involved.
