A late afternoon explosion at the Formosa Plastics Point Comfort plant, near Port Lavaca, sent plumes of smoke and flames high into the air. Several flare-off pipes were burning off residual material; however, a large fire was burning below the lower layers of smoke. This photo was taken on the Port Lavaca side of the causeway looking toward Point Comfort.
