New Blast At Chemical Plant Spurs Widespread Evacuation Orders

Authorities called for residents in four Texas towns to flee their homes ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday.

The move came following a new blast at an east Texas chemical plant that has been burning for more than 12 hours.

Jefferson County officials ordered residents within a 4-mile radius of the TPC Group chemical plant in Port Neches to evacuate.

Reuters reports a blast shredded a chemical distillation tower during firefighting efforts.
