Explosion rocks Houston

In covering the large explosion in Houston which happened on 24 January 2020, click2 reported:

Authorities gave an update Friday morning and said that the chemical that is coming from the explosion site is called polypropylene, which is lighter than air and will dissipate. Officials said they have been monitoring air quality and have not picked up any hazards.

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said that one employee is unaccounted for. The family is on the scene, but crews cannot focus on searching for the person until they have closed the valves that are still feeding the chemical compound into the damaged area.


According to Meteorologist with the Harris County Flood Control District, Jeff Lindner, the explosion was so strong it was caught on radar.
