Frank Esposito has an update to his story from earlier this week on damage near the U.S. Gulf Coast from Hurricane Delta.
As he noted on Monday, the Oct. 9 storm followed a similar path to that of Hurricane Laura in August. Laura didn't cause much direct impact to U.S. plastics operations on the coast, but power outages have slowed a complete reopening. Similar situations applied after Delta.
LyondellBasell media relations manager Chevalier Gray said that all company personnel in Lake Charles, La., "are safe and accounted for," Frank wrote. There were minor repairs needed, but LyondellBasell expected to restart later this week.
