Majority of people in Texas affected of wildfire smoke in 2011

Posted on November 6th, 2013 No Comments

A recent report from environmental group Natural Resources Defense Council said that a majority of people who live in Texas were exposed to smoke from the several wildfires that occurred in 2011, according to a news article published on Sunday, October 24.

According to the report from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), over 25 million people in Texas were exposed to smoke for at least one week during 2011 from several fires, including the wildfire that ravaged Bastrop County.

NRDC’s senior scientist Kim Knowlton stressed that even those people who live away from the wildfire may also have suffered from health problems caused by the smoke. The smoke that was produced by the wildfire had hundreds of poisonous compounds that can harm young people and those who have a history of respiratory and heart problems.

Unfortunately, this recent report of health risks due to smoke exposure from the wildfire that burned through Bastrop County two years ago is just another problem that many people affected by this fire are experiencing. Many affected by this natural disaster are also experiencing trouble getting the proper reimbursement from their insurance companies that they deserve. If you are going through such difficulties, call the lawyers from Williams Kherkher at 800-639-8460 to discuss taking legal action.
