Earlier today, a natural gas pipeline exploded at the Enterprise Products plant in Mont Belvieu, near Houston, Texas. Although there are no injuries reported at this time, at least one news report noted that a worker was missing.
doylelawfirm would like to extend our hopes that, indeed, no workers were harmed in the explosion. Unfortunate accidents such as this explosion highlight the need for an increased focus on worker safety and prompt, complete medical care and compensation for those workers who are injured.
More information about the explosion is available here, from the Houston Chronicle.
