Eastman Chemical Company says don’t be alarmed if you hear loud noises coming from the company’s Kingsport plant on Thursday.
According to Eastman, workers will be venting steam as part of a maintenance operation. The venting may result in loud noises coming from the plant.
“Loud noises may be audible, and clouds of steam may be visible,” the company said in a news release Wednesday. “Venting of steam and steam clouds are normal parts of our operations and are no cause for concern.”
Eastman says the venting will take place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and will last approximately 5 to 10 minutes.
