Plant explosions in Jefferson County Texas!

I cannot get the link to paste and work but you can check the Beaumont Enterprise;KBMT Beaumont Texas or other Beaumont or Houston media.

The explosion an hour ago blew a several story tower sky high, but fortunately only 3 injuries so far. Mandatory evacuation for both of these two cities surrounding the plant. Houses damaged for miles around Port Neches and Groves Texas.

Since the regulatory agencies do not have the staff or budgets to inspect these plants, the plants are obligated to self-report leaks or problems (yeah right).

4. 35% of refinery production for the nation comes from all of the refineries

in our area. You are right about the pollution here.

Trump is cutting what protections we do have. It seems that he only does things that are bad, never anything that is good for us, just the owner/donor class!
