VIDEO: Damage Left from Multiple Barge Explosions

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Ala. -

Chad Petri visited the east side of the Mobile River shipping channel early Thursday morning to assess the damage left behind from multiple explosions that occurred on two barges Wednesday night.

Some of the video shows damage left behind where the barges were.

A large, metal door, weighing a couple of tons, was blown off of the barge where it landed near the shore about 50 yards from the explosion site.

The video also shows a metal wall that was apparently pushed back by the explosion.

There is a lot of damage left from the explosions that will need to be assessed.

Officials are still investigating to see what exactly caused the explosions. News 5 will have live team coverage at noon.
