Chemical Leak at the Lubrizol Chemical Plant in Deer Park, Texas
On Sunday, August 15, 2021, a massive chemical leak occurred at the Lubrizol Chemical Plant in Deer Park, Texas. The chemical in question was determined to be hydrogen sulfide – a clear gas that is highly toxic. Hydrogen sulfide from the Lubrizol Chemical Plant is known to cause severe breathing difficulties such as irritation in the nose, mouth, and throat as well as cough, sore throat, and pulmonary hemorrhaging.
Due to the size of the chemical leak, the cities of Seabrook, Clear Lake, Pasadena, Deer Park, LaPorte, and even parts of Houston ordered residents to shelter in place so that the gas was not inhaled. This required residents to stay inside and turn off their air conditioning units despite the sweltering temperatures. Many have reported irritation in the nose, mouth, and throat as well as cough and sore throats.
Chemical leaks can be horrifying and traumatic. The cause of the leak must be investigated thoroughly to understand who is at fault.
