"Texas City BP plant loses power, issues shelter-in-place alert

HOUSTON – A shelter-in-place alert was issued Monday after the Texas City BP Plant lost power, city officials said.

Texas City officials sent out an automated message saying that the BP plant declared a Level 3 emergency and that more updates would be issued as soon as possible.

When the plant loses power they have to burn off their excess product in order to prevent any buildup that could cause an explosion, said TJ Aulds, with the Galveston County Daily News. He said all the flares at the BP plant were going off at once.

There was no word on what caused the power outage.

Some residents complained of the smell on the KHOU 11 News Facebook page.

“The smell is very strong! My eyes are burning & my stomach is soured. The strong winds are not helping AT ALL!” one woman wrote.

Residents were advised to close their doors and windows and turn off their air conditioners until the situation was under control."

Off topic but check out our weather for this time of year.

http://www.khou.com/weather

Looks like we are having a cold front bringing temps down below 90. Already had temps in the mid 90's. We are in a severe drought with parks closing and burn bans in surrounding counties. While further North get's drenched. Meteorologist claims we have not had this severe drought since 1911.

I just re-sodded my entire front yard and costing me over $100.month to keep it watered...gaah.gif

Drought is awful sad2.gif last year we had a bad fire season, on evac alert for a month. This year my pond has less water than the same time last year so the water table is still depleted. And a hot summer forecast.

Great, now they have an excuse to raise the price of gas another 25 cents.
