On Wednesday, January 26, 2022, around 10:45 AM, an Ethylene Dichloride tank exploded at the Westlake Chemical plant by Lake Charles, injuring at least six reported victims. The explosion was felt in surrounding neighborhoods and clouds of billowing black smoke could be seen from miles away, worrying Westlake residents. Fires were extinguished around 11:30 AM, with all shelters in place lifted. Ethylene Dichloride, the chemical in the plant explosion, is typically found in cleaning supplies, fuels, and various plastics. Though the explosion was contained in relatively little time, people were still injured and compensation should be given to those affected.
