Glad I'm south of it and not west
My in-laws live down there. They're pretty used to it though, they've lived there long enough.
I'd be more worried about the TEXAS melting.
What's burning? I don't miss Stinkagetdowndena. When I was liven there one of the plants blew up. I was nailing the wife when it happened. Later her mom called and ask if we felt it? Her mom told the wife I was rude!
8 tanks of god knows what
One of the tanks was naphtha.
I was there when it went off.
Also grew up in Houston and spent my initial married years in the LaPorte, Deer Park, ***dena area. Also worked at Timmers Chevrolet for a few years.
All that to say, its a pretty normal thing every few years.
When something like that pops off it look just like the pic....thick black billowing smoke, and you know its bad from the get go.
My understanding that a tank went off, then progressed to others (shouldnt have, but did) and several more were now burning. Im gonna go with Craig's 8 number.
....and all this popped off bout Saturday noontime.
Most of what’s burning are gasoline blending components, currently 8 tanks in total. I’m honestly thankful that it’s not worse, there are some NASTY chemicals stored along the channel. Having spent my entire professional career in some form of the petrochemical industry, I’m genuinely happy that this is not a more regular occurrence at these facilities, no matter their location in the globe. I’ve been involved in a few fires (one as a first responder and one while scrambling for safety), a major H2S release that I thought was going to be my demise, and I’ll never forget the sounds of a dying man when I worked offshore. We’re not making ice cream out here. I’ve read tons of comments on the subject in the past 30 hours, and while I can appreciate almost all of them from all sides, I genuinely wish opponents of this industry we’re forced to live without our products. If you don’t like oil and gas, find a way to live without what we produce...

Houstonians are safe from terrorism. We would just think it's another fire.
