News reports detail at least 3 tragic deaths and 22 injuries stemming from carbon monoxide poisoning in Port Arthur following the devastation caused by Hurricane Laura. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that is produced by gas appliances and other devices that operate by combustion. Exposure to carbon monoxide is potentially lethal.

It is imperative that you have your own lawyers and investigators present before critical evidence is moved or disposed of.
