HOUSTON adidas nmd xr1 schweiz , Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- When it comes to major storms, Hurricane Harvey was an ecological worst-case scenario as it unleashed a deadly gumbo of chemicals and carcinogens into waterways in the southern U.S. state of Texas, according to experts.
While the Houston area dodged the brunt of Harvey's most destructive winds, the catastrophic flooding over a four-day period wreaked havoc on neighborhoods and waterways.
Some areas received more than 1 meter of rain after the hurricane was downgraded to a tropical storm on Aug. 25. The floods inundated hundreds of thousands of homes and displaced hundreds of thousands of people.
With that much flooding, the stakes are high for the Texas Gulf Coast that houses roughly 30 percent of the proven oil reserves in the United States. The plants and refineries that line Galveston Bay are home to much of the nation's petroleum refining, ethylene and chemical production adidas nmd r2 schweiz , and jet fuel.
The plants and refineries took a big hit from the storm, releasing deadly chemicals into the Houston Ship Channel and other Houston-area waterways, an expert told Xinhua.
Danny Reible, professor of Chemical Engineering at the Texas Tech University in Lubbock, expressed concern of such a catastrophe at the start of the Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to Nov. 30.
The concern is that "major storm events might cause exposure of contaminated sites or landfills with contaminated materials adidas nmd city sock schweiz , or that a chemical facility might be damaged by a storm," said Reible.
Texas is home to 53 federal Superfund sites that have been placed on the National Priorities
