The City of West U is monitoring the Intercontinental Terminals Company chemical fire in Deer Park.
At this time there is no threat to West University Place.

You can monitor Harris County Precinct 2 Facebook @harriscountyprecinct2 and Twitter @HarrisCoPct2, and Harris County OEM @ReadyHarris for current updates on the chemical fire in addition to your local media information sources.

What is the danger?

The Intercontinental Terminal Company (ITC) fire in Deer Park continues to burn. Residents across Harris County will see a dark plume across the skyline. Currently, the plume is located at a high altitude and will continue to move westward as the day goes on.

East-Southeast winds today will continue and slightly increase, continuing to push the smoke plume to the West-Northwest across parts of Harris, Fort Bend and Waller Counties.

What you will see.
Smoke concentration will be less dense and lighter, above the ground, but will be seen over a larger geographical area. At this time, no ground monitoring stations are indicating any abnormal air quality.

We will continue to work with our partners to provide updates as needed.
