"Chemical Safety Board Sends Team to Investigate Texas Explosion"

"A team from the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board is set to arrive in Texas, Dec. 2, to investigate an explosion that injured three workers.

The blast and fire just before dawn Nov. 27 at a Port Neches, Texas, chemical facility owned by TPC Group Inc. prompted mandatory evacuations for surrounding communities. A second blast hit the plant in Jefferson County roughly 12 hours later. Three workers were injured in the incident.

Hillary Cohen, a spokeswoman for the independent board, told Bloomberg Law in an email that the full investigations team was deployed Dec. 2 and one investigator arrived Nov. 29."
