Nation's 2nd-largest refinery is flooded

Exxon's Baytown refinery, the nation's 2nd-largest facility, has been shut down due to flooding. According to CNN Money, Exxon filed a report to Texas environmental regulators, saying air emissions related to flood damage will last until Friday.   Exxon shut down the refining and chemical plant as floodwaters rose over the weekend.

According to the CNN story, Exxon was fined $20 million for violating the Clean Air Act at that plant more than 16,000 times between October 2005 and 2013.

The New Republic is reporting that noxious chemical smells have been reported in neighborhoods surrounding that plant and other chemical facilities and refineries that have been affected by flooding.
