Oil Tankers on Hudson
Big report this week in the Poughkeepsie Journal about increasing Oil Tanker traffic on the Hudson. This seems to be a concern for many people here in the Mid-Hudson. Now these vessels are pretty safe, but things do occasionally happen. If they are holding tons of flammable crude and an accident were to occur, it would be disaster. I am not trying to be an alarmist. I have no problem with Tankers on the Hudson. They are necessary and the Hudson always has been a valuable shipping route for many things. It’s just disturbing video like this that gets some people worried.
