Possible tank blowout?

I had to take down my 120 gal freshwater tank after Hurricane Florence. During reconstruction my tank was stored outside under a somewhat covered porch, unfortunately, over the 4 months, rain had gotten into the tank and froze a few times.

I am worried that the seals might have been compromised due to the freeze and thaw process. I am worried that the tank could have a blowout in the house. Can someone give me some thought on the possibility of a blowout?

I would not trust to have that in my house, 120 gallons of water is a lot

Thanks, that is my exact feeling also. I purchased a 60 gal to hold my fish until I was able to get the big tank up and running. Repairs took way longer then expected.
