The Louisiana Bucket Brigade is releasing its effects report from last week’s chemical leak in Port Allen.

The report states some people had health problems after the Butadiene leak.

Intercontinental Terminals had a gas leak on August 12, which caused a shelter in place for downtown Baton Rouge and Port Allen.

The environmental organization surveyed 74 people. Ten of them said they had health issues, like eye irritation and headaches.
