I was walking by the television this evening during the eleven o'clock news and I heard something about a chemical spill on I-26 today which had shut
down the interstate. I wasn't paying it much attention until I heard the local news caster say the chemical which had spilled was a tanker full of
?!? on the way to Eastman Kodak. I wasn't sure I had heard her correctly so I got
on the net and looked but their site doesn't mention what chemical it was or where it was going. Did anybody else here happen to catch the eleven
o'clock WLOS news or any other that mentions what chemical was spilled as I want to make sure I heard it right.
They were spraying some kind of foam on it and putting into barrels but they also mentioned an explosion hazard, so it might not have been '___', but
if it was indeed '___' what the hell does Eastman Kodak do with that stuff?
Also the articles have all been changed since the last time I looked at them as well...
Chemical Leak On I-26 Backs Up Traffic
A potentially explosive chemical leak blocks Interstate 26 in Polk County between milemarkers 59 and 63 for more than four hours.
The truck hauling an industrial chemical began leaking it this morning on the steep mountain grade between Columbus and Saluda.
That backed up traffic for miles on several mountain highways.
Rescue workers say no one, including the driver was hurt in the incident which happened around 11:30 this morning.
They say the highway was closed because of potentially toxic vapor coming from the truck and the explosion it could touch off.
