Fire alarm disrupts Kodiak meeting about Kulluk grounding

A community meeting in Kodiak on Wednesday evening about the grounding of Royal Dutch Shell's oil drilling rig, the Kulluk, was disrupted when a fire alarm went off and the Kodiak High School Commons was evacuated.

After about 20 minutes, the meeting resumed. The alarm went off because of dust in vents, a meeting moderator said.

The Kulluk, which began work on a single well in the Beaufort Seam during the short 2012 drilling season, grounded on Dec. 31 during a month-long journey from Dutch Harbor to the Seattle area, where it was headed for off-season maintenance and repairs. It had repeatedly lost towlines with various vessels during a fierce Gulf of Alaska storm. It was refloated Sunday night and anchored Monday in Kiliuda Bay on the southeast side of Kodiak Island.

2. Just a quip from a movie.


Interior Secretary was concerned about the string of mishaps the surrounded Shell's drilling operation thie last year.

"Message" was from a Wayans brothers movie where the postman would yell it out when there was an obvious statement being made.
