1 Person Missing, 7 Injured in Louisiana Oil Rig Explosion | 10-14-2017


On Saturday night, on October 14th, an oil rig explosion on Lake Pontchartrain in Louisiana left seven people injured. According to reports by local officials, one person remains missing after the explosion. The seven crew members that were rescued were rushed to local hospitals. So far, two have been discharged. Currently, the US Coast Guard is performing a desperate search for the missing man. The oil rig fire burned overnight, and authorities say the flames are burning at a very low pressure, causing this slow burn-off. Nearby residents reported hearing the explosion on the lake at around 7:19 p.m. local time. Shortly after, the city fire department was dispatched to investigate the sounds. When fire officials arrived the platform, which is a storage and transfer structure for the lake’s oil wells, was still burning. Chief Dave Tibbits of East Bay Consolidated Fire Department, suspects that the oil was spilling into Lake Pontchartrain. Officials searched for the valve to shut off what they believe is oil leaking into the lake, which is just north of New Orleans. Fortunately, no drinking water comes from Lake Pontchartrain. The cause of the blast is still unclear, but fire investigators suspect a combination of chemicals may have ignited on the platform leading to the explosion.
