I do accept the verdict, I just don't agree with it.

"According to the Leesburg Daily Commercial, the plant was built in 2004 and employs fewer than 50 people.
http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story...

About 24 workers were in the main building on County Road 448 when the first explosion erupted in another area shortly before 11 p.m., said Sheriff's Office Lt. John Herrell.

The plant runs in two shifts, and workers on the second shift were on when the blaze ignited. Some of the employees were hired through a staffing agency, which declined to comment.

An assistant plant manager near the scene Tuesday morning declined to talk to reporters about the blast and referred comments to corporate officials.

Keith said officials, "spent a good part of our night actually searching for employees."

The plant employs fewer than 50 people and 24 or more just happen to be working at 11pm on an ordinary Sunday night? Only two shifts, how many hours a week do these employees work? With that much explosive propane on site, the plant would certainly be manned 24/7.

Here's a CLUE, Rambler. Today is TUESDAY. The explosion happened at around 10 pm last night, which was MONDAY, a normal workday for those of us who don't live off the taxpayer's largesse. Most likely they work 12 hour shifts as do many people. I realize that the whole working world is a mystery to folks like you who are too impaired to be useful in the world. Tavares is a very small town. Fifty jobs lost until they can get back up and running is significant to them.
You're right - this occurred last night Monday. You saying these employees worked 84 hours per week? Won't the federal investigators be interested in that!

It was reading these comments that led me astray to Sunday --

"The fact that those things didn't explode, that's the reason I go to church on Sunday," said Eric Wages, the battalion chief for the Tavares Fire station closest to the Blue Rhino plant.

One of those massive tanks had a black smudge, a sign it was hit by a flying 20-pound tank.

"They're ... mini A-bombs," Lake County Fire & Rescue Battalion Chief Chris Croughwell said of the bulk tanks.

He feared a "BLEVE," a boiling liquid, expanding-vapor explosion.

"That's what happens in a vessel like that," he said, explaining why fire officials decided to widen the disaster perimeter (the initial isolation zone) from a half-mile to a mile.

"When you're fighting a fire like this, you want to hear that whistle – a sign that the pressure is escaping, that means the built-up pressure is leaving the tank. When they shut up, that's bad," he said.

Another day in Florida.

Two Escambia County sheriff deputies have been placed on paid administrative leave after they opened fire early Sunday morning and shot an unarmed black man in his own driveway.

Roy Middleton, 60, had gone to find cigarettes in his mother’s white Lincoln Town Car, which was parked in the driveway of the man’s home in a quiet neighborhood in the town of Warrington.

A neighbor, who apparently didn’t recognize Middleton, called 911 to report a possible robbery, and police arrived at the scene at approximately 2:40 a.m.
Their guns drawn, deputies Jeremiah Meeks and Matthew White told Middleton to put his hands where the officers could see them.

Middleton told the Pensacola News Journal that he initially believed that the voices were from a neighbor who was playing a joke on him. When he got out of the car, however, the deputies began shooting.

What a retard you are, Rambler. Of course they don't work 84 hrs/week unless they're getting overtime.

I hope you really live in Canada, it is obvious that you've NEVER had gainful employment.
Do you have a problem with following one train of thought for more than 10 minutes?

The math does not add up -- this was my original post. If the plant only runs two shifts and the plant is manned 24/7, then employees work 84 hours a week. That half or more employees were at this plant late at night when the explosion occurred is odd in itself.

The Blue Rhino plant in Tavares will resume limited production tomorrow and be back to full production by next week barring further calamity.

You can google 300 county road 448 tavares florida and find mapquest-zillow and other maps with satellite capabilities to view the place as it was prior to the blast.

The large storage tanks weren't involved and since there was video, fiery video and reporters tripping over one another the "story" eclipsed the "actual event."

That's not to make light of the five employees that were badly injured.

It's grilling and camping season, life goes on!

Since the Tavares explosion is the OT of the day, I'm asking my question on this thread as well.

"The Blue Rhino plant, which is northwest of Orlando, refilled propane tanks typically used gas grills and other home uses. There were some 53,000 20-pound canisters at the plant on Monday."

Read more: http://www.abcactionnews.com/dpp/news/state/s...
******

Will someone kindly explain for what purpose these 53,000 BBQ propane canisters were prefilled?

Maybe things are done differently than in Florida, but here a consumer would buy an empty canister and get it filled at a gas station by a certified and licenced technician who has access to the propane pump. Never, ever would propane canisters be sold to the public already filled up.

So why were 53,000 BBQ propane canisters, described as mini A-bombs, be sitting around at this plant, or is that the answer?

There is nothing to indicate anyone has ever worked an 84 hour week at this plant. You need to stop making false assumptions.
