  6. Was just browsing the webcams as is my habit to get a daily dose of beloved Duluth. When I saw the Pier B cam, I had to forward it to my sister to check if this was normal industry burn. Wow, this is not normal. There is an excellent photo of the actual rupture on the Duluth News Tribune website. There are timely reports a as well.

  8. I'm seeing one report ...though it's on youtube video ... that it was an "oil tanker explosion" - I don't know if that means a boat, truck or rail tanker.
