2017-04-24 - Ammonia leaks at Pier 38 in coastal Honolulu (Hawaii):

Quote: "At least 15 people were treated for exposure to ammonia Monday after a major leak at Pier 38. One person was transported to a hospital. Meanwhile, officials have evacuated at least 100 people from the area near Hawaiian Ice. Authorities say some 6,500 pounds of the chemical leaked in the area, though the cause of the leak was not immediately clear. First responders were called to the scene about 5 p.m., and more than 40 firefighters are at the scene. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ammonia is highly irritating to the eyes and respiratory tract."

Note: How do they know it was 6500 pounds of ammonia if they don't know the source? Are they running around weighing the atmosphere? The fishing ship 'Elizabeth' just burst into flame while docked at Pier 38 in Honolulu too, mentioned in the 2017-04-20 update. If that's a coincidence, that's a huge one, to have a ship fire and a gas hitting people on the same pier at the same dock in the same coastal city within 4 days. Considering the 'credibility deficit' with things the authorities say these days, I wouldn't even be so sure that was ammonia...
