Westlake, LA (KPLC) - An all-clear was given at Westlake Chemical South around 2:30 p.m. following a power failure earlier in the day, plant officials said.

The entire site lost power about 9:30 a.m. and power was restored around 10:30 a.m., spokesman Joe Andrepont clarified to KPLC.

A cause has not yet been determined, but plant employees are still investigating.

There is no offsite impact, Dick Gremillion, head of Calcasieu’s Office of Emergency Preparedness, said.

As a precaution, workers and contractors were asked to go to their designated assembly points.

Westlake Chemical South - which is the old Axiall location - was the site of an explosion just over two weeks ago.
