An oil tanker burns off Colon, Panama

Already well north into the Caribbean, an oil tanker can be seen burning off Colon, Panama. It's pall of smoke and soot highlights the Colon container terminal. Thanks to a friend in So Cal for filling the anticruisers in on this strange looking cloud, via satellite. Unbeknownst to them, the fire and ensuing cloud of smoke actually shut down the Canal for some time. Talk about timing!
