Locals will recall that on June 13th, lightening struck this gas tank in the photo above. It exploded into flames, fueled by a million gallons of oil inside the 50 thousand barrel tank. This tank was one of 72 in the area, owned by Colonial Pipeline of Georgia. With the fast, efficient work of the firefighters, the fire was contained and isolated to this one tank.
We've wanted to get out and photograph the tank farm for a while now. Today, we are using this photo for ABC Wednesday on the dreaded X day. X is for eXXXXXplosion.
