Chemical Pant Explosions Add to Harvey Destruction

Written by on August 31, 2017

Reports of “explosions and black smoke” came at 2 a.m. local time Thursday at the Arkema chemical plant in Crobsy, Texas.  The plant had lost refrigeration due to the floodwaters from Hurricane Harvey.  Certain chemicals they produce were to be kept cold to reduce the risk of reactions and explosions.
