The La Crosse Fire Department had issued a "Shelter in Place" order in the area between the La Crosse River north to Clinton Street, and from the Black River east to George Street. At about 8:20 a.m., La Crosse County Dispatch said the Shelter in Place order has been canceled.
The La Crosse Fire Department said a "Shelter in Place" order means: "A warning of an event where the public is recommended to shelter in place (go inside, close doors and windows, turn off air conditioning or heating systems, and turn on the radio or TV for more information). Examples include the release of hazardous materials where toxic fumes or radioactivity may affect designated areas."
The tank that blew is close to where my dh will get his fules. I haven't spoken to him for the rest of the day. he's most likely helping with clean up or now has a tripple load of work due to lacrosse plant being shut down. Dang happy that the rest of the tanks didn't go up.
wisconsin is way below normal temps this time of the year. We normally are 40 or so. some freezing nights. We have already been -4 several nights. we're getting our bums spanked hard.
I'm an hour from the yard so it's not affecting me with air quality. just not sure dh will be home for a few weeks. Looks to be quiet the headache at this time.
it is amazing what will blow it doesn't have to be hazmat , a local co-op had an explosion at one of the grain elevators , to much corn dust in the air and something set it off like an over heated bearing or electric motor
they also handle propane and fuels but this was corn dust
