60,000 people ordered to flee as another explosion rocks burning Texas chemical plant

Tens of thousands of residents in Texas have been ordered to flee as firefighters struggle to contain a massive blaze at a chemical plant, following a series of explosions at the facility.

All residents within four miles of the conflagration at the TPC Group chemical plant in Port Neches, which erupted early on Wednesday, were told to evacuate in an order from Jefferson County Judge Jeff Branick.

Communities affected by the mandatory evacuation order include Port Neches, Nederland, Groves, Beauxart Gardens, Central Gardens as well as portions of Port Arthur.

4. The local news is reporting

The air sampling is only showing trace amounts of VOCs, and no butadiene or benzien.

Well, I knew it wasn't the Stern gang or Irgun or Haganah or Brit HaKanaim or Tzrifin or Mossad or Lehi, as the original poster apparently hinted it was.
