A lawsuit in south Texas has been filed against British Petroleum over pollutants leaking out of the company’s Texas City refinery.
The lawsuit claims more than 500,000 pounds of pollutants were released into the air when one of the compressors went offline in April.
The citizens of Texas City experienced “sinus and eye issues, coughing, feeling nauseous, and feeling lethargic,” from exposure to benzene, one of the chemicals released, the suit claims. The lawsuit seeks $10 billion in damages.
