Axiall's Lake Charles plant shut down due to power failure

HOUSTON, March 10, 2016 (PCW) -- Axiall Corporation reported it had experienced a power failure at its Lake Charles VCM facility Wednesday morning, causing the plant to shut down and workers to be evacuated. Power was restored in about an hour.

There were no reported injuries to personnel as a result of the power failure. Employees from the plant were either evacuated off property or requested to shelter-in-place as a precautionary measure.

The power failure led to a release of hydrochloric acid, according to a Louisiana State Police spokesman. There was not believed to be an off-site impact, but the company was continuing to monitor air quality. The VCM plant was reported to be coming back online on Thursday. -– Donna Todd
