Published time: 21 Jan, 2016 21:22 Edited time: 21 Jan, 2016 21:39 Heavy smoke and activated safety flares are being reported at an Exxon Mobil plant in Beaumont, Texas, according to local media and journalists. “The Exxon Mobil Beaumont Complex experienced a site-wide power outage," Lee Dula, public and government affairs manager for Exxon Mobil, told the Texas Examiner. "We are using our safety flares as a result of the outage." “There is no cause for alarm, and we will provide updates as they are available,” Dula said. Lamar University announced it would close for the day, the university's police department said on Facebook. The police instructed those in the Cardinal Village dorms to stay inside until further instruction. "Once it has been deemed safe to return another notice will be provided," the statement said. ======================== Mention Friends Pug Kirby Welp, oil's low, no profits. set a fire for insurance $.

Why is it that I can get more up to date news, with less bias from Russia than the U.S.? If you had told me 20 years ago that this would be true, I would have laughed in your face, but here we are.
