Houston flood: Blast at chemical plant

It is learnt that the plant lost the ability to refrigerate chemical compounds that need to be kept cool.

The company had earlier warned that there was no way to prevent an explosion.

Around 300 homes were evacuated in preparation for the possible blast. However, officials said a woman may still be in evacuating zone but not confirmed.

After the blast, one deputy was taken to hospital after inhaling fumes from Archem plant in Crosby. Nine others drove themselves to the hospital as a precaution.

Over 130 teenage deaths have been linked to Blue Whale - also known as F57 - in Russia, while the death of an Irish teenager in May raised fears that the sinister challenge could reach youngsters in the UK.
