PEARLAND, Texas — A tweet by the City of Pearland late Thursday morning caused concern for residents there.
"A shift in the wind will bring the benzene plume from Deer Park over East Pearland," the tweet said, citing a report from the National Weather Service.
We checked with the NWS and they said the report about Pearland is incorrect and they haven't spoken with anyone there.
"Pearland is NOT expected to have any health effects" related to the ITC fire, the NWS assured us.
Harris County Meteorologist Jeff Lindner agreed.
We've also been hearing from Pasadena residents who wonder why there's no shelter-in-place there. Pasadena's mayor and fire chief say monitors have not detected abnormal levels of benzene in their city.
As of 11 a.m., only Deer Park and Galena Park are under a shelter-in-place.
