  1. I remember that. I lived nearby. So many people died because it happened in the middle of the night. Many pets died too. They quarantined the area while they cleaned it up. Planes couldn’t even fly overhead. It was too dangerous from the chlorine gas. I read an article in the paper that said one of the men killed was a truck driver who decided to park his truck and he died in his sleep. Tragic.
