Thursday evening, all of a sudden, a thick white smoke came out of the Vizag HPCL refinery. With this, the people living in the surrounding region got panicked and rushed to the roads. The people of Vizag are yet to forget the LG Polymers incident. Even before forgetting LG Polymers incident, White smoke from Vizag HPCL has left the Vizag people to panic.
But then, the officials of Vizag HPCL immediately alerted the public of HPCL surrounding region. Officials clarified that it isn’t a harmful poisonous gas or chemical leak, It is just the smoke locked up in the refinery. Officials added, generally this type of smoke would be released during the night hours or during rain. But owing to Lockdown, the officials had to release the smoke. After the assurance from HPCL Officials, the villagers of the surrounding region, Malkapuram, felt sigh of relief.
Most of the industries weren’t functioning during the lockdown. When reopened for operation after a long gap of 2 months, several such incidents are taking place. That’s the reason said to be behind most number of accidents occuring in industries from past few days. Hoping that the respective industry officials take care in ensuring safety to the employees as well as the public.
