Chlorine Leak at Dow

A fire and chlorine leak led to an order for residents in parts of Iberville, Louisiana to shelter in place Monday evening. That shelter in place order was lifted, and the all-clear given, just after midnight.

Dow Louisiana Operations released a statement that said employees properly carried out emergency precautions and that emergency response teams “immediately engaged” to assist in containing the spill.
