Choco Bayou emergency shutdown

The Amazing Kreskin: is he on the industrial payroll?
Brazosport area industry is getting better and better at reporting "upsets" and is now reporting them before they occur.

Has The Amazing Kreskin been hired?

At Chocolate Bayou, for instance, plant authorities reported a computer glitch caused an emergency shutdown at 2:22 p.m. today (May 11). Right now, it's 9:45 a.m. (May 11).

This is a positive development. Gives everyone time to get upwind or grab the gas masks.

Contaminants released: 10 lbs hydrogen cyanide, 100 lbs acrylonitrile.
