Big Boom In Seabrook, No Injuries Reported
There was a big, loud boom and plenty of smoke near Seabrook this morning, but it appears so far that there are no serious injuries attached to an explosion at a chemical plant.
Shelter-in-place warnings are in effect near the American Acryl plant, which is not extremely close, as these things go around here, to any huge residential neighborhoods.
It looks like a bullet was dodged.
