Dominican Republic: Gas Leak Causes Harm

Bracuta has a personal account of yesterday's gas leak in Santo Domingo that does not correspond with official statements saying the leak was not harmful. A commenter has already offered legal services. DR1 searched the United States’ Environmental Protection Agency website “and found that it ‘can cause death by respiratory paralysis. It is an eye and respiratory tract irritant. Exposure results in pulmonary edema and hepatic and renal damage (Clayton and Clayton 1981-82, p. 2067)’ see http://yosemite.epa.gov/oswer/CeppoEHS.nsf/Profiles/74-93-1?OpenDocument”
