Employees at the Geismar chemical plant are being evacuated in response to a "non-specific security threat". A company spokeswoman tells us all work is temporarily suspended and they are working in coordination with the Ascension and Iberville Sheriff's Office. They would not elaborate further on the threat. This is the same plant where more than 100 people were injured, and two killed, following an explosion in June.
