Not a hurricane this time.

A fire at a chemical plant has forced the evacuation of [Bryan, Texas, pop. 72,000] after it released a massive plume of toxic orange smoke that could be seen for miles Thursday, officials said


Ten people were hospitalized with respiratory problems, local media reported. Texas A&M University, headquartered in neighboring College Station, was also shut down, area news said.


The evacuation is not mandatory and officials are not preventing people from going home but officials asked people to “use good judgment.”

  Raw Story

Hey, this is Texas, okay?

....but hey, ask what you will anyway.
