The City of Houston is monitoring strong odor moving across the Houston area.  The odor began at the LyondellBasell plant in Channelview and is drifting west across the city, primarily between I-10 and Hwy-59, including downtown.  The odor has a sulfur-like smell.

Air quality monitors do not indicate the presence of hazardous chemicals.  However, Houstonians may want to avoid travelling through the affected until the smell has dissipated.

Residents should stay informed by:

  • tuning their radios to 88.7FM or 740AM
  • watching local television stations
  • Monitoring official Social Media Channels like Twitter or Facebook
