Texas chemical company leak

A major chemical company in the Texas city of La Porte issued a shelter-in-place order for nearby residents and workers after a toxic gas leak saw eight people taken to the hospital.

Altivia Chemical said it was working to contain a leak of a gas called phosgene from its plant, as the city’s emergency management agency ordered residents and five neighboring chemical facilities to shelter in place out of caution.

Local media reported all of the eight injured were in stable condition at the time they were leaving the facility but were sent to the hospital as a precaution.

Located about 30 miles (48km) east of Houston, La Porte’s office of emergency management (LPOEM) said the city issued a cautionary shelter-in-place until the amount of phosgene released is determined.
