Oil rig explodes off Louisiana coast; 11 missing

I think we have (a) board member(s) who work on oil rigs in the gulf coast. I hope all is okay.

I believe John Hansen (secrecher) works on the rigs, and rigdvr runs boats servicing the rigs. I hope we hear from them.

Spent a year of my life on the Ocean America. This is every rig hand's nightmare, from the pusher to the roustabouts. Hope all hands are safe.
