Holy smokes another Carnival cruise ship in trouble affecting passengers and causing an evacuation!
Alan Waugh, who lives at the Fort Conde Inn across the river from the scene, saw the blasts and said throngs of Carnival employees and others were clustered on streets leading toward the river as authorities evacuatedthe shipyard.
“It literally sounded like bombs going off around. The sky just lit up in orange and red,” he said, “We could smell something in the air, we didn’t know if it was gas or smoke.” Waugh said he could feel the heat from the explosion and when he came back inside, his partner noticed he had what appeared to be black soot on his face.
Video showed flames engulfing a large section of the barge, and a video that a bystander showed the fiery explosions and billowing smoke over the river.
Trevell Taylor was at work at Delta Bonds when he heard the blast.
“It was so loud, I just about jumped up under this desk,” he said.
Trevell said he next heard sirens from emergency vehicles and then a second, louder explosion. He turned on the local news and learned of the barge fire.
“It is a scary thing any time you are talking about gasoline and fuel fires. They are lucky more people weren’t hurt.”
