There have been a number of incidents at industrial and manufacturing plants.  There was a chemical release at the Marathon Galveston Bay Refinery in Texas City, Texas on June 27, 2023.  There was a deadly grain elevator collapse in Tynan, Texas on July 4, 2023.  There was a pipeline explosion and fire outside the INEOS Chocolate Bayou facility in Brazoria County, Texas on July 13, 2023.  There was an explosion and fire at the Dow Chemical facility near Baton Rouge, Louisiana on July 14, 2023.
