Highly toxic smoke after explosion in Chemiewerk

Thursday, August 31st, 2017 | World News

After the explosions in a flooded chemical factory in the US state of Texas, the authorities have warned of massive health risks. The emerging smoke is "incredibly dangerous," said the chief of the disaster control authority Fema, Brocklong, on Thursday.

The authorities asked all residents to evacuate within a radius of three kilometers. The chemical plant in Crosby, about 40 kilometers north of Houston, is under water as a result of the Harvey storm. In the night to Thursday there were two explosions, since then smoke winds from the plant.

The operator, Arkema, had previously said that they wanted to "burn out" the fire in the plant. Because dangerous substances are stored in many places in the plant, there is a risk of further explosions.
