Another lawsuit has been filed against the Weaver fertilizer plant in Winston-Salem.
Residents in Winston-Salem who were forced to leave their homes after a chemical fire can now get some help with their evacuation expenses.
A dramatic fire near the plant burned through the night and into Saturday but led to no evacuation orders or serious injuries — just heavy smoke that was seen and smelled in nearby New York City.
Smoke is rising over the city from a plant complex that makes chlorine for swimming pools, according to a state official. Residents are advised to shelter in place until further notice.
Criminal charges against a chemical company that flooded during Hurricane Harvey are raising two big questions: When is pollution an accident? And when is it a crime?
