Many people felt the ill effects of the gas release and currently TCEQ who came to take measurements is analyzing the information hopefully to be made public in a few days.
One resident reported: “I have been trying to get something done about the pollution since it started. It’s 12:48 pm now, I still feel sick from driving close to the pressure pumping station, now I have a bad headache. It has gotten anytime I go outside this summer I get sick very quick. I’m not going to just live my life by staying in the house from now on. I was born in Ft. Worth, Texas in 1949. I never had any kind of allergies till the gas wells showed up. the wind blows from the direction on those sites most days. the only day i didn’t get sick when I went out was the day it RAINED and cleaned the air…”
Where’s the media on this? No newspaper, no radio, no television, nothing. Just collateral damage.
