Tanker explosion

An oil tanker after unloading its cargo of oil has exploded off the coasts of Japan. Apparently, a grinder was being used to clear paint from the walls of the ship when the explosion occurred. Do not underestimate the dangers of hot work even in a so called empty tank. The force of the explosion has ripped open thick metal sheets as you can see in the video in this link.
