It was by turn to give blood to the VA today because of my doctor’s appointment coming up.
This is the first time in 9 years they missed Valentine day or my birthday for the appointment?
Must be a new group?
soon so I could not write about this
‘SAFE TO TRAVEL CRUDE OIL!”
Remember, I wrote with all types of oil and gas from Bunker-seed (#6 oil) through #4, #2, Kerosene, Diesel fuel to gasoline.
Number 6 heating oil at the time, in the 60’s was $.02 a gallon but you needed two very large electric heaters in the fuel oil tank, two in the boiler room on the wall and one on the fuel oil burner!
This Crude Oil on the train was twice as thick with pollutants.
Both our government and the government of Canada keeps telling us how safe it is to transport around our country, I say Google it!
Derailed into a house and explore twice
Shut down two water treatment plants
A train carrying more than 100 tankers of crude oil derailed in southern West Virginia on Monday, igniting 14 tankers and sparking a house fire, as several communities were forced to evacuate.
One or two of the cars plunged into the Kanawha River, said Robert Jelacic of the West Virginia Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management.
CSX said the train was hauling 109 cars from North Dakota to the coastal town of Yorktown, Virginia, where midstream firm Plains All American Pipelines runs an oil depot. It said one person was being treated for potential inhalation of fumes.
“CSX teams also are working with first responders to address the fire, to determine how many rail cars derailed, and to deploy environmental protective and monitoring measures on land, air and in the nearby Kanawha River,” CSX spokesman Gary Sease said in a news release.
The office of Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, which has issued a state of emergency, said the tanker cars were loaded with Bakken crude from North Dakota and headed to Yorktown, Virginia.
Train derailment sends oil tanker into West Virginia river
A train carrying more than 100 tankers of crude oil derailed during a snowstorm in southern West Virginia on Monday, sending at least one tanker into the Kanawha River, igniting at least 14 tankers in all and sparking a house fire, officials said.
The Bakken Shale Oil field, which stretches down from Canada into North Dakota and Montana, could hold over 5 billion barrels of oil reserves.
